My name is Benedict "Ben" Xavier DeMoras and my goal in life is to turn my passion for sustainability, environmentalism, and solving climate change into a career helping inspire climate action. In addition, I am an active beekeeper, website designer and developer. In my spare time, I am building a tiny house (which I now plan on using as an office space), and I enjoy running, sailing, graphic design, and photography. All my life, I have loved doing and making things with my hands. Once something interests me, I pursue it obsessively until something else takes its place. As such, I have made myself a very busy person. When I do happen to have a free moment, I love to spend it in the outdoors. I have applied to Cornell University for a degree in Communications and Environmental and Sustainability Sciences.
