My name is Noeau Makamae Machado. I am a student at Kamehameha Schools on Oahu. I have lived on Oahu my whole life, and love it here. My hobbies include surfing, working out, running, hanging out with my friends, climbing things, playing guitar, reading, and having fun enjoying my life. I enjoy a simple lifestyle. Surfing, jumping off rocks, being wild with my friends, or simply climbing a fun looking tree.
In our generation of advancing modern technology, I still prefer a more natural life. I don't like watching t.v. for hours, I would rather go outside and do something. I get bored being stuck inside for too long. Doing nothing makes my whole world slow down, and I feel tired and drained. Being outside is so much more rewarding and fun.
I find the concept of environmental sustainability interesting and plan on majoring in environmental science in college. I think that it is our responsibility to take care and preserve our planet and its finite resources for the future. I think nature is beautiful perfection and should be preserved, not changed or modified.
