The main goals of the NCSCA are to raise awareness about climate change and encourage youth to take action such as attending clean up events or lobbying.
And Ariana Nicholson is directly in the middle of all the action.
"We aim to raise awareness in our communities and across the state about the causes and effects of climate change, and to take action through politics and community organization. In our activism and projects, we seek to involve a diverse range of students, regardless of political or social affiliation. We will no longer be idle; climate change is here and now, and it is our responsibility to better the world of tomorrow." -Part of the NCSCA's mission statement
|Our spotlight camper: Ariana Nicholson|
In the end, Ari isn't much different than any of the other teens attending the summit. She simply found a way to express her passion. Hopefully over time, all of us can discover our passions and find ways to spread that passion. If any message can be taken from Ari, it's to not keep your passions a secret; seek out others who may have the same drive. If students from all over the state, or even the nation, begin to communicate, there is nothing that cannot be accomplished.
