Junior Marina Qutab took second place in Turning Green’s Project Green Challenger, a national competition that asked college and high school students to make their lives more sustainable through a month-long series of daily green challenges.
For the final competition held Nov. 20-22 in San Francisco, she used her talents in music and her background in communications to create a music video for her sustainability song “Just Remember Change Starts Within Thee.”
After the competition, the Rutland resident, who is majoring in communication and Arabic, said, “I could have never dreamed that I would be here today. I’m humbled. I’m empowered.”
