“After participating in the Contest, my perspective on climate change definitely widened. I learned so much and have grown as an activist. By creating artwork with my research and passion, I realized that art can be a global communicator and a way we can exchange ideas without any language barriers. I can use my art skills as a voice and as a tool to inspire others and to make a change.”
