Thanks for visiting my Planet Forward Profile! My name is Michala and I'm from the Capital Region. I attend SUNY Plattsburgh where I study Environmental Science and Economics and Sustainability. I have a passion for the green movement across the world and believe in a future where people can peacefully coexist with nature and live healthy, responsible and sustainable lives. I joined the Planet Forward team at SUNY Plattsburgh because I believe the first hurdle to overcome in influencing action on climate change and a change in lifestyle is awareness. Being able to share a story with others that resonates with them is one of the most powerful tools of influence and education. Story-telling has the power to educate the present and influence the future by creating conscious, environmental stewards who will fight for increased investment and action in the security and stability of the future. Thank you for taking part in this movement in your own way, taking the time to read and learn about todays environmental happenings and allowing me this platform to share my voice!
