Adelle Welch, a spring 2019 alumna, was featured in The Traveling School’s 2019 Impact Report as an Alumnae Changemaker.
Her story below:
High School Senior, Livingston, MT.
The Traveling School Spark:
“The Traveling School challenged me to think about different perspectives in a more inclusive way. I can listen easier and understand other’s ideas and opinions. I also started to think critically about how actions and words impact the people around me. For example, with consumerism, how what we buy impacts the world.”
“I’m wearing the same dress for this entire semester to protest the environmental impact of fast fashion. I’ve inspired a few friends to join me. I couldn’t have done this before my Traveling School semester. In South America we lived out of a backpack, and I only had one pair of jeans for the entire 15 weeks. That experience taught me to live simply. Additionally, so much of what I learned on the semester led me to think about how my consumerism has a global impact.”
Thank you, Adelle, for sharing your story with The Traveling School!
