“In Elementary school at the GATE program, we cleaned up beaches and really helped the community. I feel like I was really bettering myself as a person. We redid the signs for drains so people would know to not throw trash there. I remember researching the Pacific trash websites and that was really eye-opening for me. Ever since then I have been really conscientious about littering and stuff like that. I try to find the receptacle for everything, and if I see trash around my neighborhood I pick it up. It’s something I try to pride myself in.”
