My name is Grant Ainsworth and I am passionate about protecting the environment. Coming from a place like Juneau, Alaska, I realized the effects of climate change early on. Growing up not a five-minute walk from the retreating Mendenhall Glacier left an impact on me. Each summer, I would hike to the base of the glacier. But as the glacier retreated, the walk became longer and longer year after year. It was a devastating experience.
