JFEW Alumna Naomi Oreskes has an important message

“I can tell you that a lot of what happens — floods, droughts, mass migrations, the end of humanity in Africa and Australia — is the result of inaction to very clear warnings.”

In a recent New York Times piece, geologist, professor, and former JFEW scholar, Dr Naomi Oreskes discusses her detailed research into why people fighting action on climate change focus on economics instead of science. She emphasizes the negative impact that ignoring climate change will have on the future of our planet. Her research was cited by Al Gore's work "An Inconvenient Truth" and she says she was met with both overwhelming support and backlash as she began to vocalize her findings on the evidence of climate change.

Be sure to also check out her TED talk, "Why We Should Trust Scientists."

JFEW Alumna Susma Gurung graduated valedictorian of her class

Our accomplished JFEW Scholar, Susma Gurung recently graduated as the 2014 valedictorian at New York City College of Technology - and she delivered an inspiring speech at graduation. Her achievements prove how her sense of humor, hard work, and support from loved ones helped her over the finish line. She so eloquently said:

"Finally, today, we are graduates and just a step away from being nurses. It has been a tough journey full of tears, happiness, anxiety and stress. Strong friendships have been built, tears have been shed, our sanity has been tested, doubts about ourselves have been raised and many failures we have faced. However, despite all the hurdles and storms that we have gone through, I am certain that I speak for everyone when I say it was all worth it. We thought this day would never come, but look around, here we are. On our pining day, the fruit of our sacrifice and hard work feels so sweet. Today marks the day that our hard work has paid off. Today marks the day that our professional journey has only just begun. Today marks the day that WE DID it."

We are so proud of you Susma!
