"Without clean air, water and soil our planet might endure but the people, animals and resources will suffer. It is a no-brainer to leave a gift to Greenpeace in my will as I love my planet and the flora and fauna that inhabit it. Through affirmative action Greenpeace has made a positive impact on ensuring clean food protection, protecting dwindling rain-forests, saving some animal species from extinction and by challenging destructive and greedy ideology of some governments to make short term profit instead of long term goals for the future of the Earth’s inhabitants. I left a gift to Greenpeace in my will because it brings me hope, joy and a legacy for the future of our planet."
Why did you include a gift to Greenpeace in your Will?
"We are one people and we stand united on Greenpeace campaigns that actually make positive changes despite the odds."
What would you like to say to future generations about the environment?
"I have subscribed to working in social organisations that assist and nurture people. I began my teaching career facilitating learning for primary school students both in Queensland and in the USA. I got my Masters of Education in Teacher Librarianship in 2010 becoming a teacher librarian and later worked in public libraries. Public libraries are a free social resource for people of all walks of life and it is these ideals that resonate with me.
"My passionate hobby is Nia Dance Technique and I have been teaching this blend of dance, healing and martial arts since 2012 in Brisbane. This is a lifestyle practise that brings joy through movement medicine and I attained my Black Belt grading in 2018. Dance globally and historically is a practice that humans from ancient times have used for their creative expression. I have travelled overseas and seen the diversity of seasons, flora, fauna and different cultures."
