"My environment has shaped who I am. I’ve grown up in a place full of industrious people who make their living from the land. ... My father is a commercial fisherman and my mother has played a large role advocating for the use of wind power on my home island. I can’t imagine living in a place without greenery or without fresh air. I need my environment to be clean and lovely if I’m going to be any use to anyone at all."
