Dear my future child,

I have always wanted to go up to the Norwegian Fjords since I was in 6th grade. It’s a very beautiful place filled with exquisite valleys and lush boreal forests. Norway is truly a magical place that hopefully, by the time you are reading this letter I will have gone to.

Right now in 2018 climate change is a hot topic. We are already seeing the effects, poles are melting, the weather is getting more and more unpredictable. The land is getting filled up with trash from landfills and it seems like the whole world is polluted.

However, this is why I am currently working hard to earn my degree in Environmental studies. I hope that by earning this degree, I can help reverse these effects so that you still have magical places like the Norwegian Fjords to dream about.

I promise you, I am going to do everything I can to save this planet for you. I won’t let you down, I swear.

Love, your future mom
