Miranda Peña

EarthEcho Water Challenge Ambassador

Trujillo Alto, Puerto Rico

Miranda Peña is a seventeen-year-old student who likes to learn about the effects that humans have had on the environment. This curiosity stems from the fact that she lives in Puerto Rico and would hate to see the island’s beautiful beaches be damaged by water pollution. She hopes to continue to educate herself and others on the factors that cause water pollution like industrial waste (oil spills, sewage and wastewater, etc.) and global warming. She would like to extend this research past the island’s barriers and learn about the quality of water in other countries around the world
