Some words from my eco-responsible role model
Last summer, I wrote a blog post about my environmental justice journey. I reflected on assumptions that I made, things that I learned, and how I evolved. Crucial to this personal growth was my good friend, Diamond Yao. Diamond studied Sustainability, Science and Society at McGill, minoring in East Asian Languages & Literature, and currently works as a freelance journalist. Over her years of volunteering, facilitating, and writing, she has accumulated myriad diverse experiences that have shaped her into the eco-justice activist she is today.
With her unique experiences and perspectives, she inspires me every day to stay educated and do better, especially regarding environmental issues. Therefore, I decided to interview her for this blog post. I hope her words speak to you and that you learn something new!
