Gauri is a high school student from Rochester Adams High School in Rochester, Michigan. She became very interested in the environment after learning about the science behind climate change in her 8th-grade science class. Gauri came across Grades of Green when she was looking for a mentor to help her and her friends eliminate styrofoam lunch trays at her school, and she immediately became very interested in Grades of Green’s mission of empowering youth to create environmental change in their communities. This summer, Gauri is contributing to this mission by working with the Programs Team to prepare resources for students to take environmental action.
