    I started a social media awareness campaign on the effects of female education on climate change. I shared information and resources on this topic and was amazed to reach an enthusiastic audience. Multiple people shared their thoughts on the topic and said that they were grateful for the opportunity to learn about something they had never heard before. This was a great experience and I was able to both learn and teach.

    Materials Research Cement Alternatives
    Concrete is a good example of a material that most of us encounter every day, but its carbon footprint may not be obvious. What other everyday materials might have a large carbon footprint? How can you find out more?

    Concrete was fascinating to research. The concrete industry is one of the primary producers of CO2. Concrete also damages the topsoil layer of the earth and contributes to problems like runoff, soil erosion, water pollution, and flooding. There are however new options for building in concrete such as Green concrete, ashcrete, micro silica concrete, and even coral cement!

    Hi, I just wanted to say I have really enjoyed this experience and have also improved a ton. Throughout this challenge, most of my daily challenges have just been happening without me thinking of them. We have done amazing and have worked together a ton and it definitely paid off. We should do other challenges in April and October. Thank you so much.

    How difficult or easy was it to change your diet?

    It was quite easy because I don't use very much of those products. I did some research and most of the products that I use are certified and grow their cocoa trees on a farm and therefore are planting the trees not just cutting down the ones in the forest.

    Women and Girls Research Barriers to Participation and Representation
    What are some of the barriers that exist to women's equal participation and/or representation in your community?

    Perception and judgement from others is often a huge barrier to equal participation.  In the early stages of potential engagement, we all are very vulnerable to negative judgements or discouragement from others.  When we were river guides, often we had passengers who wouldn't trust the female guides to get them safely down the river.  We would witness passengers avoiding boarding rafts piloted by female guides and crowding to rafts piloted by males, not knowing that the female guides they were avoiding were far more experienced and skilled.  This often resulted in less passengers in their rafts and accordingly a diminished opportunity to get tips.  I'm sure dealing with  that negative judgement and decreased earning potential was very discouraging to many would-be female guides pursuing raft guiding as long as they would have liked.
