How can we have a positive impact on our environment? As with other areas in which we hope to see change in the world around us, we can start by making changes in our own lives. If everyone committed to at least one change a year, can you imagine the difference that will make to the future of our earth? There is a direct relationship between the actions we take today and the environment of the future.

What do you miss most about your hometown when you're at UVA?
Right now it’s my Golden pup Charlie! At seven months old he is a handful, but whenever I’m home he’ll follow me around and it tugs at my heartstrings to leave that behind.

Most people in Charlottesville got up from their beds on March 8, 2016, as if it was a typical Tuesday. Some went to their jobs, others to classes, and still others to visit friends. But on that same Tuesday, March 8, 2016, the women of Cameroon didn’t get up and go to work, or school, or to visit their friends. Instead the women of Cameroon came together in different cities and regions and MARCHED.
