My Capstone project would be ... Gathering stories about the ways that specific communities have organized around protecting local endangered species.
Someone you admire or would consider a hero ... My great-grandmother. She emigrated to the US from Ireland with little money and raised her children during the Great Depression. She was famous in my family for having infectious positivity, energy, and a constant can-do attitude, even while facing these (and other) life challenges. I am inspired by her story and feel honored to be named after her!
My favorite children's book is ... The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster
