Hi everyone! My name is Laura and I'm a freshman studying Math and Economics at UCLA. Although I attend school somewhere sunny, I'm originally from Toronto, Canada where I grew up hiking, skiing, camping (yes, sometimes in the snow!), and road-tripping across national parks. Other than spending time outdoors, I can be found binging old Disney shows or movies. I've always loved the Lorax, maybe in part because it sounds like my name or the fact that I'm a huge fan of animation. But for the most part, I think it accurately captures the way our economy works and the toll that Earth takes as a result of our profit-driven country. I believe there's still time to save our real-life Trufulla trees and I hope to find a way to make businesses work better for profits, people, and the planet. It's a privilege to be a part of Voiz's spring cohort, and most importantly, a movement alongside individuals my age towards holding people in power accountable!
