The guiding question that my capstone followed was how are we able to give advice to younger students trying to navigate high school? We wanted to share our experiences with how the reality of high school is actually very different from what we see on television and in movies. The way we went about this process is firstly we wanted to make it longer and include more, but we felt like we should just make it about our experiences and made it the highlight. We created two parts talking about our experiences and we talked about multiple topics in them. I felt like in the end, we learned that high school isn’t going to be perfect like there will be ups and downs, but it was experience that made us who we are today.
Basically, I chose air pollution for my topic because it has always been a problem that has been talked about on multiple occasions, but is still deemed as not important enough to actually pursue change. This is like the air we breathe in every day and it could possibly one day become very toxic and will be our downfall. Some things I did well will be probably the research aspect cause I had to like probably research thoroughly to make sure that I got the correct information. Some things I would probably do differently would be time management probably and yeah.
Is global water crisis an environmental justice issue? Why or why not?
I would say yes, it is an environmental justice issue. Seeing how much we, as humans and other living organisms depend on water to survive and function, when these global water crises happen, they can greatly affect water, which also greatly affects us because of how we borderline use water for almost everything and need it to function.
