Sophie Fox (AUS)
I am a Year 8 student from Abbotsleigh who is extremely passionate about making a change in relation to current world issues. Some of these include climate change, waste (both food and rubbish), gender equality, education and violations of human rights. I first became passionate about these issues in Year 1, when I heard about the impact of petrol on plants and the environment. I started taking action on these issues because I felt adults were not taking our generation’s future seriously, and our politicians were ignoring science. Everyone wants our hard work at school to pay off, therefore we need a future, but everyone, including our leaders are taking it away.
