Education

Greetings from the 2011-12 Roots & Shoots Youth Leadership Fellow!

It has been one month since I started as the Fellow. I came to this position after being involved with a
Roots & Shoots Youth Leadership Council. Having the opportunity to spend time with the youth leaders, I
have come to learn what an incredible group of individuals they are - enthusiastic, passionate and inspiring.
One of the projects that I was extremely excited to help lead is the annual Global Youth Campaign.

Last week, students at the Madam Newton Einstein Science Academy in Oak Ridge North, Texas decided to name their new class hamster after Jane. The Academy described Jane as a four-week-old, short-haired beige and white hamster.
