I have a B.A. degree in Liberal Studies with a concentration in anthropology. Currently, I am applying to a graduate program in writing, as I love to express myself through the written word. I mostly enjoy writing creative non-fiction. However, I also have a strong inclination to help animals in any way that I can. I also like doing whatever possible to help the environment thrive. Writing petitions that bring awareness to the numerous amount of animal welfare issues, as well as to conservation and environmental issues, is something that I find to be extremely important. While many of these subjects are difficult to read about and to accept as truth, without advocating for change, positive strides could not be made. I hope that you will sign my petitions and support me in my cause to ensure that domestic animals receive the justice that they deserve, animals in the wild are treated more fairly and also to better ensure that we are all able to live in a safer and healthier environment. Thank you for supporting such causes. Without your signature, these changes would not be possible.
