    One place that has shaped who I am today is the community library in my hometown. It was cozy and I loved looking through all the books. It definitely felt magical to me and impacted how much I love a library now.

    What is one way in which oceans support your life on Earth? What is one way you can help take care of ocean health with your actions?

    Oceans support life on Earth by contributing to the ecosystem which keeps the Earth alive and functioning.  I can help take care of ocean health by not eating seafoods that are in high demand and are unethically sourced.

    I cannot do this if I am being totally honest. I do not want to be without coffee. But what I am doing is looking into responsible and aware coffee companies who are ethically harvesting their coffee. That way, I can support an ethical company and people trying to make an honest living and I can have my coffee too :)
