    One of my most memorable volunteer experiences was working with the Covenant House, providing services to help homeless and runaway youth. I look forward to volunteering at our local Boys & Girls club, as I feel especially strongly about helping underprivileged youth.

    Creating a readiness plan was eye-opening... while it felt a little like "doomsday-prepping" it made me realize how unprepared we were in the event of a disaster or emergency. It was a valuable exercise.

    It was good to be fully prepared in case of an emergency.  We have essential items, first aid kits and flashlights that are easily accessible on each floor along with prepping our car with additional essentials in case of any emergency.

    I have added my own garden and have started expanding it. I have taken into account by making sure I add flowers that help pollinators, bees, butterflies and hummingbirds which in turn help us out in the environment.

    Using these lists I will certainly consider buying more locally produced organic products and try to add additional items to my garden.

    My sustainable development goals are going well. I am learning a lot and trying to change my habits as much as I can in a more positive way.

    Economy & Communities Understand Your Climate And Natural Disaster Risks
    What are the climate and disaster risks in your region?

    Wild fires and flooding are the two biggest climate risks in my region. Fires because of all the wildlife vegetation in the state and flooding because of rising sea levels and the wetlands nearby.

    Economy & Communities Mend Clothing

    Mending my clothes is a very difficult skill to have and master. I am a beginner so my stitches are not even or great, but hopefully with practice I can mend clothes without it looking like an amateur job.
