AAC-PTS Class of 2015 – Daniel Abdelnour
Daniel is a senior at Palmer Trinity School. He is set to graduate in 2015 and hopes to become an Agent of Change. When asked about what first drew him to the program, he said he believed that “the program is a big opportunity to convert my passions into a business idea that can help the community.” Daniel has three passions: his family, his home country Venezuela, and the sport of golf. He was raised to give without expecting anything in return and always sees the best in others. Daniel want to follow his passions and create a business out of it that he can enjoy and help others at the same time.
My initiative is Panirama
Parinama was founded on the basis of a paradigm shift. It is the Sanskrit word for change. A change of mindset. Our goal is to inspire people to change the way they see three specific environmental problems: trash in beaches, plastic bag pollution, and sea level rise. To achieve our goal we will host beach cleanups to collect trash which will be upcycled by students to create art pieces. The art made by students and professional artists will be sold at our event Save the Beach Miami Art Gala at the Biscayne Nature Center, in Key Biscayne Florida. We will also work to address the source of the problem, where the trash, especially plastic, is coming from. We will reach out to local pharmacies, major contributor of plastic bags, in order to reach a compromise on an alternative: paper bags. Lastly, to raise awareness about sea level rise we will create a website that contains facts about how sea level rise affects the coast of South Florida. We will also give presentations to schools about these topic, because the sooner we educate the younger generation, the better.
