Climate Project: Dynisha Blaise

16, USA, Taught for Students By Students
“I mentored students in developing renewable energy projects in communities facing energy insecurity. A base design of a hybrid energy bike powered by renewable energy was developed by students. An understanding of the causes of climate change from man-made emissions was gained by students to allow young students to feel capable of intervening in this global crisis. I engaged with very young students and discussed climate change and the effects and implications it can cause on their community. The students have a better understanding of climate literacy and can intercept the line of ignorance that exists in our world today. 1-10 people have been impacted so far.”
Dynisha was born and raised in Florida, spending most of her life by water or heading to the beach. She enjoys traveling, exploring, and learning about the world around her. This summer, she ventured to Costa Rica to learn about Climate Change Mitigation for three weeks. Each week she traveled to different reserves and forests. That same summer, she joined the FAU Pine Jog Environmental Education Center's Climate Resilience Education and Action for Dedicated Youth Ambassadorship Program, which is an innovative dual enrollment program that gives high school students the tools they need to become informed and powerful advocates for climate resilience in their neighborhoods.
She intends to pursue a bachelor's and Masters's degree in Animal Sciences, as well as a minor in Wildlife Ecology & Conservation. As a result of environmental education, she aims to contribute to wildlife conservation. Aiding the animals that have supported Earth's system is her passion.
