#WorldEnvironmentDay + A Special Challenge

#WorldEnvironmentDay + A Special Challenge

Here’s a question that I want all of my readers, young and old, to ponder. How much time do you spend in nature? On a daily basis?  A weekly basis? Keep the answer in your mind as you read this post. Today is World Environment Day, an initiative hosted by UN Environment.  This event was created to celebrate nature and encourage the protection of our environment!  The first World Environment Day was held in 1974 in U.S., and since then,…

I Will Never Be A Martian. Period.

I Will Never Be A Martian. Period.

This post was inspired by a segment on the show “Real Time With Bill Maher”.  As this show contains profanity and other mature content (and some of my readers are quite young), I haven’t included the video in this post.  However, you can find the video on Youtube by searching “Bill Maher: Make Earth Great Again”. I will never be a Martian. This may sound like a weird statement to make.  But read on, and I’ll explain what I mean….

We Are The Future

We Are The Future

When was the last time you felt really inspired? The last time that you learned about something, and knew that you had to share it? The last time you wanted to change the world? The last time that you felt that you could really make a difference? It’s just too easy to use age as an excuse. Sure, we can imagine ourselves doing notable things as adults, but as teenagers, what do we see ourselves doing? Texting? Watching Netflix? We limit…

AFTW Holiday Challenge #2: Regifting

AFTW Holiday Challenge #2: Regifting

This is the second post in my AFTW Holiday Challenge Series.  Read my first post here. Chances are, you saw that title and cringed. Regifting!  As a gift giver, that’s only the most shameful act that one could commit!  It’s tacky, cheap, and thoughtless to the recipient!  How could anyone commit such a heinous crime? Just listen for a minute!  Ask yourself, how many gifts do you receive every year that you never end up using?  Kids, this is particularly…

My Experience Meeting David Suzuki!

My Experience Meeting David Suzuki!

“We’re in a giant car heading towards a brick wall and everyone’s arguing over where they’re going to sit.” – David Suzuki Last week, I had the privilege of taking part in a roundtable discussion with David Suzuki, along with 9 other youth from across Canada! How often does a girl get to meet her hero! The conference was part of the Planet In Focus film festival in Toronto, Ontario.  Adria Vasil, an environmental journalist and bestselling author, was our…

Here’s Why I’m Having A Cow Over Beef

Here’s Why I’m Having A Cow Over Beef

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, this post may look familiar to you.  That’s because it’s based off of a post that I wrote two summers ago entitled “Moo-ve Over, Beef!”.  The original post was lost when I started AFTW 2.0, so I decided to update it and repost it. This post pains me to write.  Here’s the thing…I love hamburgers.  Love them, love them, love them! But this must be said.  Dramatic?  Maybe.  But bear with me…
