“I always wanted to work outside instead of serving food all day and gaining weight – it did not do anything for my body. I love nature and work toward helping my community thrive. Working with RMYC in conservation does not just mean dirt, soil and bugs. It is the people around us and how we can bring people together to help that is the most meaningful.”
