Kelsey Zabawa, New York
Currently majoring in Early Childhood and Special Education, Kelsey has been on the Dean’s List for three semesters, hoping to make this semester the fourth! She believes good grades are important for her goals as a future educator. Kelsey enjoys the outdoors and spending time with family and friends.
Kelsey has created the initiative Pamela’s Planting Promise in memory of her mother who passed away from cancer in 2014. The mission of Pamela’s Planting Promise is to continue her mothers’ legacy in preserving the Earth and educating our youth in sustainability.
Kelsey has been working with the Boys and Girls Club summer camp, where she created an upcycling craft for the campers and planted their very first garden!
Kelsey's message to others is that living sustainably is so much easier than you think. “Sustainability starts by simply turning off the lights in your home and unplugging appliances when not in use,” she advises. Turning off the water while brushing your teeth and even growing your own food right in your own backyard are other great tips that she suggests when it comes to sustainable living.
“Sustainable living is simple, fun and a great way to help out the environment!” Let’s all take a step in our sustainability journey by applying the tips that Kelsey suggests.
