    I thought I was doing a pretty good job of being 'green' ... but realized through this challenge that I was truly only doing a few very small things, and there is so much more I can do. I made several additional changes (mostly small things) that I am really excited about and look forward to identifying more ways I can reduce my impact.

    Eco challenge was a great success! I have been training for a half-marathon, and used it as a great excuse to go running / recovery walking in new places when the spring rain wasn't too bad. These walks have helped me reconnect with the nature in my local community, I have watched the greenery erupt over the past month here in Atlanta.

    It has also helped me better place the importance of sustainability on a local level. By making Emerson's operations more sustainable, we each take personal accountability in making our own communities more enjoyable places to live.

    Education & Livelihood Research Impact Investing
    After learning more about investing, how can you increase positive impacts and decrease negative impacts?

    I went through my various investment accounts - 401K & personal brokerage to analyze the environmental impact. The majority of my personal investments are targeted specifically at green energy businesses, so the impact there is minimal, but my 401K is loaded into a limited set of funds. Some of these funds are highly diversified which reduces personal risk, but significantly increases potential environmental impact of my investment. I have started some preliminary research into the efficacy of ESG ratings, to better guide investment decisions moving forward!

    A great introductory module! With a lot of the focus on the planet / energy, it can be easy to overlook the other critical elements of sustainability. We cannot make wholistic progress without focusing on all 3 pillars

    Helping kids with their learning opportunities gives satisfaction and we can make a positive change by promoting quality education!            Studies shows that basic learning needs of the students got highly impacted by COVID 19 pandemic.

    Health & Equity Learn About Participation and Representation
    What are some of the barriers that exist to women and girl's equitable participation or representation in your community? Do you experience these barriers?

    There are many barriers that women and girl's face in our communities and workplace. The one that I found the most interesting in my research was menstrual periods and pain. Starting from elementary sex ed. boys and girls are separated creating a stigma surrounding the periods and pain associated with it.

    Economy & Communities Mend Clothing
    What was it like to mend your clothing? If you are skilled at mending, what tips do you have for others?

    Honestly, it was really easy to mend my clothing. I always keep a sewing kit in my home because I would rather mend an item of clothing than buy something new.
