Ella's Excerpts

Hello Everyone!

As an 18 year old student and activist, I am passionate about changing the world with positivity: self-empowerment, love, and impact. I felt lost and powerless in looking for solutions that would impact the world. EmpowerUs! From Crisis to Strategic Harmony shocked me. It introduced me to a roadmap that can get us to a sustainable and equitable society. The

How are YOU supporting the necessity for a sustainable future?

The world is hurting. Global trust in political and business institutions is waning, and let’s face it, the distrust is justified. As a college student, I am passionate about changing the status quo by changing my perspective. We must transform the world with positivity: self-empowerment, love, and impact. I think that genuine, sustainable change starts at home, one mind and

What global issues are important to you? How can we address and overcome these challenges?

Environmental issues are close to my heart. I think sustainable development is instrumental to a prosperous, human-centered future and that we must use our means of mitigating harm to drive equity as well as perform damage control. Climate change is just one of many interrelated crises Gen Z is inheriting, including climate change, economic inequalities, and the human toll of

How can you leverage your values to generate change?

It is a difficult question with a simple answer. Just start. We are all afraid of being the lone changemaker.

How can we transform our power structures to include the historically excluded?

I think it starts with creating venues for collaboration. We need to lift up those who succeed and empathetically listen to the concerns of those who don’t; and, when people don’t succeed, we need to hear their grievances, understand why, and work to fix their circumstances. Everyone has a unique perspective with value to add to a conversation, but we

How can we restructure our socioeconomic framework to promote progress?

Restructuring is an imperative to achieving our shared goals. With the same societal framework, one devoid of opportunities for real collaboration, our actions will not generate the impact necessary to achieve sustainability and equity because our decisions won’t include input from all stakeholders. We need genuine collaboration through restructuring of our institutions and creation of interactive spaces where stakeholders can

How can we break the crises we face into manageable pieces?

It starts looking at our issues as opportunities for change rather than agents of destruction. Having a ‘change in mindset’ is more than just a change in outcome; it’s a transformation of the entire system of doing things, from design to implementation. However, this transformation is much simpler than we give it credit for: it’s simply living our values and
