To my future dear family,

Every day I struggle to be a better person, for deserving the title of daughter of nature, so that my Mother can feel proud to have me as her daughter. In these 24 years on earth, I have never consciously contaminated; My parents taught me from my earliest years that I should never throw my trash on the floor, that I should turn off the lights every time I left a room, that my showers might be short, that I would not let the water run unless it really were necessary.

I have been conscious with my Mother Earth during these short 24 years. I love the place where I live, I love clean air, to escape, to talk with nature and to feel heard by her. I love the land in the same way that a poet can love its greatest inspirational muse. I admire every day the beauty of the landscapes I have traveled, which I have captured in photos on each of my walks, and I admire each of those landscapes that one day I hope to meet. I would hate every future day of my existence if all that wonder with which I have grown someday disappeared.

I fervently believe in the kindness and respect of the human being for life. That is why I sincerely hope that the world can reason, that you can finish the work that at this moment, the people who love the earth, the ecosystem and every living being on this planet, are doing right now.

I know that I have made many mistakes in my life.  Perhaps I will never be leading or donating large amounts of money to sustain a huge change, but I do my part. I have personally been in charge of speaking and sharing my ideals with many people. I want the world to stop being so selfish, I hope that human beings can stop thinking only about its own species. I want the human race to love every species as if they were brothers, so that the human being can, with his thought, act for those who do not have the capacity to reason, but who have nevertheless shown tremendous superiority to us: animals.

For now I will continue to do my part. I hope that someday, the years give me the reason, all the damage we have done to the planet in some way can reverse. I want my children, grandchildren and all future generations to enjoy everything that exists on earth today. I want us to progress so much and that responsibility for our environment will be part of your DNA.  Above all, someday when I look back I want to feel proud of the person I was. There is still a lot of work to be done and I hope you are the fruit of all that.
