My name is Imran Gangat, and I am a junior from Syosset, New York. This will be my second year with the National Youth Council, and I am super excited to be on the leadership team. As a member of Project Green Schools, I have been able to grow my passion for environmental activism and I’ve had many opportunities to be an environmentalist in my own community. Moreover, I’ve been able to network and collaborate with environmentalists from other schools, which has been an amazing experience. This year, I’m excited to serve as the news editor for the National Youth Council and hope to help create many interesting blogs and newsletters. I look forward to interacting with the rest of the council this year and hope to help initiate environmental change in schools across the country!
