Gina Barragan Gomez knows that taking action on climate change cannot wait. That’s why she founded Save the Earth at Woodside High School, a group that brings guest speakers to campus, educates students on the environment, and fundraises for ecofriendly items like metal straws for the community. She is an outspoken advocate for change and has taken on leadership roles in her school’s Green Academy and Forestry Challenge Group. After graduating high school in 2021, Gina plans on majoring in environmental and marine science and dedicating her career to the conservation of animals and their habitats.
