She is from Uganda, East Africa, and is a climate activist. She started out about 5 years ago inspired by her love for nature, and also by news that shocked her. In 2008, environmental strains led to crop failure in Maharashtra, India. In reaction to this, farmers committed suicide. The pain of this news awoke her fighting spirit, and she has been on her journey of activism ever since.
Some of the environmental campaigns that are close to Annette’s heart include:
The domestic use of plastic: “If you can’t reuse it, don’t use it." She also creates awareness through her email signatures.
