Lets Help Alexandra Fischer Get to the Washington Youth Summit on the Environment!

BRIGHTON, Mich. May 3, 2012 - Recently we were approached by a lovely young lady who is trying to raise money to go to the Washington Youth Summit on the Environment in Washington, D.C. this summer from June 24th –June 29th. Meet Alexandra Fischer: Alexandra is sophomore at Brighton High School who has been nominated as a National Youth Delegate to attend the Summit by one of her teachers. After listening to Alex’s story we were more than happy to help sponsor her trip. After reading this we hope that you’ll help too.

The Washington Youth Summit on the Environment is a once in a lifetime opportunity. As a National Youth Delegate, she will be recognized as one of the most promising young leaders in environmental conservation and will join the select group of other young leaders like her from across the country to share in this experience. This convention will be held at George Mason University in Washington D.C. and will be hosted by The National Geographic Society and the Smithsonian National Museum. Alex was nominated, anonymously by one of her teachers because of her outstanding academic record and her sincere interest in environmental preservation.

Meet Alexandra Fischer
Alexandra was born and raised right here in Brighton, MI. She is currently finishing up her sophomore year at Brighton High School. Alex is on the BHS Equestrian team and is also involved in the Top Dogs Sports Leadership program, which is a program for sophomores on sports teams with potential to become great team captains. On average, Alex rides 2-3 days a week over at Higgins Stables and on Saturdays she works at the barn to help pay off her lessons. She usually grooms the horses, helps give riding lessons, or lends a hand where she can. Alex is very dedicated to her schoolwork, she said she spends a lot of time studying and doing homework. She even said she is a, “self-proclaimed nerd.” We believe Alex is one of the best well-rounded students around, not just a “nerd.” In what we can only imagine is a very small amount of free-time in this busy girl’s life she enjoys watching Glee and Criminal Minds, reading The Hunger Games, and listening to Keane, Fun, Young the Giant, the Bravery, Augustana, and Passion Pit.

After high school, Alex would like to study environmental science or environmental engineering at a technical institute like MIT or Stanford. She is also considering applying to schools in Chicago and New York to experience life in a big city while furthering he education, or applying to the Naval Academy. Wherever she goes she wants to follow her passion and study environmental science.

After getting to know Alexandra and learning about the Washington National Youth Summit on the Environment we were more than happy to help sponsor her. We are not alone either, many other Brighton businesses are stepping up and lending Alex a hand including:
·      Corrigan Oil Co.
·      Cook and Hayden Vision Care Center
·      Natural View Market

Alexandra is keeping a blog called Alex on the Environment, which will keep everyone posted on the Washington National Youth Summit on the Environment convention events and her thoughts about them. Right now her blog is documenting her fundraising efforts and thanking her sponsors. If you are interested in helping Alex out with her fundraising efforts please send her an email:
