For Water Day in 2020, we would have a party at a chosen lake. There are many people wearing Water Day T-Shirts. All kinds of smells and aromas fill the air. When everyone is ready, we go to the arrts and crafts table and make little rafts. Many people make notes and letters to loved ones. Others light candles. I make a lily pad raft. As we set them afloat, the water is filled with so many beautiful pieces of floating art. After a while, the water slide is brought out. Kids join in the water… Continue

One social innovator I found was Fabio Rosa. He is doing a project on how to get affordable and sustainable energy to people who never had electricity before. His idea was to have one single wire be connected to everything instead of using multiple ones so that they don't have to pay as much. Though he had many brilliant ideas, no one was interested and he tried other things but had to keep retrying. His projects are being used for the poor people in Brazil.

With all the electricity we are using, there must be a way to waste less. Something we can do to help that is to have Electric Eels power some of the things we use everyday. For example, the television is used almost 24/7. Electric Eels can release up to 500 volts of electricity. If we used that to power televisions, we could probably keep it running the wh*** day, not that anyone would.

Halloween isn't my favorite holiday, but it uses the least electricity. In 2020, when there's less energy to be used, Halloween might stay the same. My family would go to the grocery store and buy three large pumpkins. Two of them, my sisters and I carve funny faces into them. When we're done, we put a long-lasting candle in it and place it on the front steps. The other is saved for pumpkin pies and other delicious foods with pumpkin in it. That's one reason I like Halloween, there are so many… Continue

In some places, there are terrible droughts. Though they try hard to plant a garden, it is very hard to keep it alive. Some problems that they might have is not fertile soil, unclean water, or a shortage of a meat source. That wouldn't be a problem for me because I am a vegetarian. If ever, there was nothing to get meat from, I would be able to adapt quickly. In some places, they don't have the resources for meat or to plant a garden. Some places barely have rain. And gardens are good ways to… Continue

In the backyard of my house, I helped my mom plant a little garden with figs, tomatoes, peas, beans, and many more herbs and vegetables. To help someone in my community with food security, I would give them the supplies needed to plant their own garden and help them plant it. Organic fruits and vegetables are more healthy for you and having your own garden reproduces each year and only needs natural sunlight and water/rain. It takes low maintainence and provides you with food. When you grow… Continue

I'm sitting at my dinner table with my wh*** family. We are eating just fruits and vegetables, anything we can make of those. All the animals used for meat are extinct. All our produce is grown in our little backyard garden. There are salads with as many herbs and vegetables you can imagine. We eat in silence wondering if we will be fortunate to have enough to eat the next few months. You see, I have a big family. It's three adults and three kids. It takes a… Continue

A social innovater is someone who comes up with ideas to help the world and everyone in it. They try to help people and make things more convienent. It's like what technology does for us today.

A social innovator works to change the world. Even the smallest change that can help people, they will try to make. Social innovaters should be the heroes to everyone… Continue

The person I chose to shadow is Paula Kahumba. She is in Kenya right now and fights for wildlife conservation. She is the executive director of WildlifeDirect. I chose her as my hero because we share the same interests. I love animals and believe we should protect them. Animals are an important part of our lives, ecosystem, and circle of life. Some people don't think about animals as important. This is really sad because animal cruelty is still… Continue
