Within the past year, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of high school students who have contacted us for information for research projects, and in the number of high school students who want to schedule presentations at their schools. Last week, two students from Irvington High School in San Leandro took this inspiring trend to a whole new level. Jemar and Ty not only wrote about factory farming for their senior projects and scheduled a presentation at their high school... they went out and GAVE the presentation! ty-and-jemar.jpg Jemar and Ty took the initiative to reach out to the biology club at Ohlone College to schedule a presentation, and then gave the presentation themselves. This marked an exciting new moment for FFAC, since we've never before had high schoolers deliver our presentation. We asked Jemar and Ty to share what inspired them to help educate others about factory farming, and this is what they had to say: "The reason why I chose this topic was because I have a passion for animals and to see them put into such horrible conditions makes me feel sick. I wanted to do something that would affect animals in a positive way and also help humans in the process. That is why I chose to volunteer for FFAC because just knowing about the problem can help stop the problem. " - Jemar "I got interested in this topic because I am taking the AP Environmental Science class we have at my school. When we came across the subject of ways to help save the environment by changing our food choices, I knew right away I wanted to learn more about this topic. After finding out my research, I felt that I need to share this with others." - Ty Thank you Jemar & Ty for your inspiring work!
