Maram Ahmed

Future civil engineer Maram Ahmed is inspired to create a more sustainable Bay Area. A junior at Mills High School, Maram has already taken steps to make her community more environmentally friendly. As an SMC Youth Climate Ambassador, Maram worked with administration at her school to install rain barrels so that rainfall could be used for the school garden; she continued this work at the district level, developing a District Sustainability Committee in partnership with the SMUHSD superintendent. The problem-solving and collaboration skills Maram has developed through this project prepare her to make an incredible difference in her future career.
