I’m speaking today on Green City Force’s Pillar of Sustainability

During my time in service at Green City Force I learned a lot about myself. I had a clue about what I wanted to do, but Green City Force opened up way too many doors for me. I had dreams of being a veterinarian, but my experience at Green City Force changed that. Now, I know that I want to work outside in a job where I can save resources for the future. This program has shaped me in many ways, taught me to always believe in myself, and inspired me to always think about the choices I make and their impact on the future of the planet. I also think about the legacy I leave behind for my nieces and my nephews and the younger generation. Because of the program, I’m committed to a career where I can give back to my community and the earth. I’m going to miss the Green City Force staff & my cohort Members. I’ve Gained so many friendships and connections. My biggest takeaway is to always have faith in myself.

Also, hard work and being outside during all types of weather has humbled me, and I needed that. I just want to say congratulations to cohort 14, and the best of luck to all of you.
