Making a difference.

Determined to drive progress on environmental causes, I have co-authored and published a children’s book in three languages raising awareness about plastic pollution and encouraging daily sustainable practices. 
I also serve as a mentor to other student authors, a speaker to youth organizations, and a leader of my school’s environmental club.
I partner with the Indonesian Embassy in Washington, D.C., schools, and other non-profit organizations to educate youth on how to take action to better the environment.

My research, under the guidance of Dr. James Truncer, explores how microplastics affect water systems and have a disproportionate impact on underprivileged communities.

Ambitions in action.

This past summer, I developed curriculums for Washington, D.C., and Indonesian high school students, working together to create and implement waste management reduction plans in their schools and neighborhoods that achieve measurable impact.
The goal of the project was to show how local environmental efforts, happening at the same time at opposite ends of the planet, can have a real impact on the environment.
