Hello, I’m Kate Moisan and I am a member of Kid Governor Lea’s Cabinet. My platform is The Negative Impact of Pollution on Animals. I chose this because I care very much about animals being safe, happy, and healthy. My three point plan is PAM (Pick up trash, Adopt an animal, and Make your yard animal friendly).
Since the Kid Governor Inauguration, my family has been very supportive of my platform. For example, my aunt adopted two animals from WWF (World Wildlife Fund) for me and my little brother. My mom and dad have talked about spending a day at the beach or on the mountain having fun and picking up trash. We will also be planting more flowers in our yard when Spring comes. I’m happy to know that my family will support me every step of the way. I also plan to talk to my school’s student council to see if we could work together on my platform by possibly adding a few things to our school’s naturescape (more bird feeders, birdhouses, flowers).
If you would like to help me support my platform, you can set up days with your community to clean up forests or beaches. You can make birdhouses for your yard or plant trees in a park, with permission of course. These are just some examples. You and your family can come up with various things to do. Anything to help the environment works!
Having a healthy planet for animals and humans means a lot to me. Small things like using reusable water bottles can still make an impact. According to Google, every year pollution kills about 1 million seabirds and 100,000 sea animals. That is a CRAZY amount! The sooner we act the better!
Harriet Tubman once said “Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” I feel very grateful to be a part of the 2023 Kid Governor’s Cabinet. Working with Lea and the other cabinet members is going to be a wonderful experience!
Anyone, young or old, can make change.
