About this Project:
Known as eco-anxiety, the phenomenon is best described as mental and emotional stress placed on an individual when witnessing lack of change being brought about for the good of the environment.
Our project aims to connect people across the globe with climate anxiety.
It provides a medium other than Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms where users can feel comfortable and safe to interact with each other while also keeping up to date about the measures taken to combat climate change.

A first generation Latina who is a computer science graduate with a special interest in frontend development. Through the years as a student I have worked on many amazing projects such as creating an interactive BINGO website and have interned in an amazing technology company. On my free time you can catch me reading articles on the Medium or coming up with ideas for potential apps!
An educator for more than 25 years, I currently lead a team that provides academic and organizational supports to NYC’s alternative schools and programs. Prior to this role, I did similar work in Manhattan, as well as a citywide network of schools. My first love will always be School of the Future where I taught math and science, then served as middle school director.

The best piece of career advice I've ever received
As you go through life, absorb knowledge like a sponge and squeeze it out wherever necessary.
Resources that I'd recommend
Amanda is a key member of Emoti-Con's Steering Committee. When she was a high school student, Amanda presented her Mouse Design League projects at Emoti-Con several years in a row. Now, as an alum, she has returned to Emoti-Con to help design, plan, and lead it.
The only suggestion I would have is to possibly invite a "call to action" type of item and have ways and petitions in which a local person who cares about climate change could get involved in helping or bringing attention to the issue.
