Student and Green Advocate in Hampton, Virginia
Hi, I'm Amirio!
Main things to know about me? I'm a:
+ Virginia native
+ Undergraduate student
+ And green advocate who is dedicated to integrating racially marginalized communities (e.g. Black communities, Latinx communities, etc.) into efforts to resolve present environmental and sustainability challenges in the U.S. and abroad.
As someone who grew up feeling underrepresented in spaces centered on green living and advocacy, I am dedicated to ensuring all people—especially those in racially marginalized communities—feel welcome to participate in today's fight to create a more sustainable and ecologically sound world. To manifest this goal, I have gained experience in the non-profit, communications, community outreach, and higher education spheres. Currently, I am interested in pursuing other relevant opportunities in environmental philanthropy and/or the public humanities.
