Hello! I am Grace, and I am currently a junior in high school in California. I really enjoy spending my time with my dog, drawing, and doodling throughout my day. I really like going on hikes with my family as well, especially when hiking on trails at Yosemite National Park. I also love being surrounded by nature and learning more about our environment where I was inspired to get more involved in helping to spread environmental awareness and sustainability. I am so excited to be a part of the Thriving Corals Team and help promote awareness of different environmental issues and ways to protect our planet.
