My name is Tag Quijano. I am a Junior at Princeton Day School in Princeton, New Jersey, and am currently attending the School for Ethics and Global Leadership (www.schoolforethics.org), a semester school in Washington, DC.
My interest in sustainability and the environment acts as an interdisciplinary medium to nurture my interests in science, engineering, and education. I am the co-head of my school’s environmental club EnAct (Environmental Action) and am an active member on sustainability committees at my school and in the Princeton, NJ community including the Princeton Environmental Film Festival planning committee.
I recently created a Bike Powered Water Pump, which is a system where students ride on a bike to pump water from a rain barrel into a garden. I have recently re-designed this system to use 3D printed parts and have plans to send them to schools around the US and the World. More info can be found at bike.tagquijano.com
I have attended the Student Climate Conservation Congress for the past 3 years and am an intern for the Green Schools Alliance. I attended the UN Resilient Design for Sustainable Urbanization High Level Discussion in October 2013, the People’s Climate March in 2014, took part in the White House Climate Education Event in August 2015, and attended a Youth Summit in NYC in Preparation for COP21 in October 2015 among other events and programs.
I enjoy learning new things and traveling. In the future I hope to become an engineer who designs and invents sustainable inventions for those in impoverished as well as developed countries, and use my technical, academic, and leadership skills to make positive change in the world.
