On International Women’s Day 2013: An Interview with my Role Model, Severn Cullis-Suzuki

Today is International Women’s Day and so it is a good day to share this interview that I did with a woman who is my role model – environmental activist, Severn Cullis-Suzuki.

On February 25th I went to Roy Thompson Hall to see David Suzuki and his daughter Severn-Cullis Suzuki speak. Before the show Severn came early to meet me and I had a chance to interview her. When I heard that I was going to get to talk with her,  I was so excited. When I met her I couldn’t believe I was meeting my role model! After I did the interview I ran into David Suzuki, Severn’s father and I had no idea I was going to meet him. Their talk was amazing, Severn told me that it was the first time that they were giving a talk together. Severn shared her life-story with the audience and David talked about what we can do about the environment and the problems it is facing.

    • Thank you Paige! Severn is such a big role model for me! She has showed me that you are never too young to change the world, she spoke at the UN when she was 12! We also started caring about the environment at the same age, so we have connections. She is awesome!
