My name is Kat Piera and I believe sometimes the best things come from “mistakes”. The world has flaws, and bringing people together to shift once negative problems into positive improvements and learning experiences.We must acknowledge wrong actions and words– anything damaging or harmful to the earth and its people of equal importance. We need to learn in order to better the way we treat others and to prevent further harming our ecosystem.
I am passionate about bringing light to under-recognized topics like renewable energy, and the safety of our electric grid. I am currently studying engineering at Virginia Tech and I hope that problem solving involving sustainability is a key aspect of my future career.
Secondary to being a student, I am a rock climber, a harpist, an artist, and an article writer. I hope to continue to grow in all of these areas and begin learning in other areas such as research and podcasting.
