When did you first get interested in conservation?
Some of my favorite memories growing up were when my dad would take me camping. I couldn’t wait to explore in nature during the summer every year. Natural spaces make me the happiest and many others as well. That is why I want to protect and promote conservation initiatives and projects, to fight for what I love.
What did you choose to work at Wildchain?
I chose to work at Wildchain because their approach to protecting the environment and endangered species was one I hadn’t heard of before. I was really curious and interested in how they were using entertainment to help fund environmental initiatives.
Favorite memory while working at Wildchain?
My favorite memory would have to be working at the Good Society Expo and getting to meet many different social enterprises and organizations that wanted to do good in the world.
As a child, the movie ‘The Lion King’ taught me the phrase the circle of life, which to me meant that every living thing on our planet is connected. And so a happy ecosystem= happy planet inhabitants. Today, the balance is broken and our environment and life on earth are equally in trouble. This motivates me to dedicate my time, talents, and skills to causes that seek to heal our environment and all of its inhabitants. I’m currently doing research and content creation at Wildchain for projects aimed at conserving species in the African Savannah.
