Lena - Pacific Collegiate School
My name is Lena Jones and I am a senior at Pacific Collegiate School. Now I know right now we're all living in unknown, unprecedented times and it's scary. But I know that with passionate, smart leaders we can fight for the planet and the people on it. Ultimately what matters to me most is understanding the land we live on, oceans we swim in and fighting for sustainability and equality together.

Hi! I'm a senior at Santa Cruz High school and love the natural world! I am planning to major in Biology/conservation studies with the hope to later become a Wildlife conservation biologist!

I enjoy spending my time outdoors with my family and friends, which is why preserving our environment is very important to me. I want future generations to be able to enjoy the wonders of nature that we have been able to enjoy. It’s our duty to preserve our world and to learn more about it. My goal is to learn more about the environment and teach others how to better their life styles to preserve the planet as well.
