Isabelle – Qld
17-year-old Isabelle lives on the Gold Coast, Queensland, where she is finishing her last year of high school. She developed compassion for the natural environment at a young age and has stood firmly in her belief that everything is interconnected. Her involvement in bushwalking, beach clean-ups and recycling centres has enabled her to incorporate her learnings into making her life more sustainable, which she hopes to inspire others to adopt as well. She also leads a plant-based diet to minimise her impact on the environment.
Through her role in NYLC, she is looking forward to connecting with kind-hearted, passionate individuals to share her enthusiasm for the need to improve and protect the world. Isabelle believes Dr Jane Goodall’s mindset of wanting to turn apathy into empathy is the foundation of a better future for all, she hopes to educate others on this mindset.
