Emilia Fiebel

EarthEcho Water Challenge Ambassador

Hollywood, FL

Emilia Fiebel is a Senior Water Challenge ambassador from Hollywood, Florida. She is 18 years old and goes to Sheridan Technical High School. Her most memorable convention she particiapated in was the Algalita POPS Youth Summit in 2018 to speak about her fight to remove single-use plastics in restaurants on her beaches. She even went to the City Hall of Fort Lauderdale to present her initiative to the board. Most recently she has been focusing on her Food Recovery Initiative at Beachside Montessori Village and is in the process of planning a program at STHS. She hopes that with a food recovery program at every school, she can not only help the community by donating unwanted foods to food banks and women’s shelters, but by reducing the greenhouse gases that would enter the atmosphere and the plastic from the containers that would be put in the landfill. In the past year, she was also quoted in the Sun Sentinel, Sk*p blog, and the Harvard C-Change blog. She attended the UF FYI program and Harvard C-Change summit over the summer.
