I have been with Eagle Eye since I was six years old and participated in many Learn About programs. I have stayed connected with Eagle Eye and nature since then. I try to find moments of nature in the city. I am now studying landscape architecture at Northeastern University because I want to connect people of color to nature, and Eagle Eye has definitely played a significant role in this endeavor.
Eagle Eye bridges the gap between city life and the great outdoors for young people by introducing experiential educational programs, offering leadership opportunities, and collaborating with local youth groups and partners. Many youths who live in urban places, especially youth of color, often do not have the means, knowledge, or opportunity to explore nature, simply based on the systemic framework of redlining, as well as other greater responsibilities they encounter at home.
I am happy to assist the organization in any way I can. Currently, I am helping with graphic design and social media.
