2016 Rider Profile: Carina

Meet Carina, sixth in our get-to-know-the-riders series.The 2016 PA-to-DC ride will take place April 29 -May 3.  

Carina IPL ProfileMy name is Carina and I’m a middle school student at Park Forest Middle school. I have decided to take this adventure because I want to experience a long distance ride thru the country. It also provides me an opportunity to make memories with my Nana and Papa. My Papa will be joining me on my adventure.

I really enjoy outdoor adventures but also spend a lot of my time playing volleyball and swimming. My mom calls me a Fish because I’d rather be in the pool. I also sing in my school choir and like the feeling of performing in front of everyone.

I think caring for the environment is important because If we stop caring for the environment, every thing will start to die out and the world we become lifeless.

Climate change is having some bad effects on the world, especially in North and South pole. The North and South Pole are suffering because the uncontrollable heat is causing the snow and ice to melt. This causes the Polar Bears not to be able to find food, unless they swim a great distance battling the weather and predators. This is threatening to the population of the Polar Bear. I believe that we should do something about the way we take care of the environment and how we can help the people and animals with the climate change.
