Dearest Summer,

This is your cousin Mackay on October 30, 2017. Tomorrow I will enjoy a night out with my friends for Halloween and hopefully make memories that I will cherish and weave together to remember my senior year of college. Right now you are 10 years old and I can only hope that you have the same opportunities in your life as I am having in mine, and even if that is not the case then to take advantage of every opportunity you possibly can! In case you were not already aware, humans have impacted the environment in many negative ways (and many positive ways too!! {lets not forget}), and I am currently going to school to study environmental science so that I can share my values and beliefs to encourage others to live as sustainably as possible. To me this means recycling, compositing and getting rid of my ‘trash’ in proper ways so that it can be reused or degrade properly in the environment. To eat as clean as possible because while we are here on this earth, our body is our vessel that allows us to achieve our dreams. I think it is a beautiful thing to be passionate and to stay motivated, and the only way to do that is to do what you enjoy doing! You are a spunky girl, with so much energy that you use to sing on the top of your lungs, play with your siblings, run around doing sports and a big brain to use and impress others 😉 I love you for all that you are and my wish is that you get to enjoy your time on this planet and always stay true to yourself and your beliefs. You can achieve the world so let’s make it so others can experience this mysterious and wondrous place to do the same!

Love always,

Your cousin Mackay <3
