Jenna NewmanJenna Newman (26)

I am a passionate young adult who believes everything is capable of change; I hate the phrase "that's just how things are." When I see injustice in the world, I can't help but speak out against it. But I am not just a passionate youth with no direction. I study hard and do intense research to inform myself of all the facts before I take a position. Becoming a part of ForceChange has given me a constructive outlet for all my beliefs, and hopefully I can make a change in this world, no matter how small.

Kari MazeKari Maze (214)

I enjoy writing and public speaking more than anything else. Writing in order to try and produce change is one of the things I love doing the most, as being a part of something that makes a positive difference in the world is of the upmost importance to me. In addition to doing this type of writing, I also really enjoy playwriting and other forms of creative writing. As far as my experience in public speaking, I have given many educational tours and presentations on animal conservation and other essential environmental issues. I feel lucky to have had these experiences, as educating people about such issues helps to better ensure that more people will do what is necessary in order to preserve the planets' magnificent species and the beautiful earth on which we live.
