In what ways does nature inspire or inform your work?
The fluidity and diversity of nature informs my work; it challenges me to think about systems in broader and more holistic terms, to support the activists fighting to preserve nature, and when I’m actually writing, nature brings a sense of peace, serenity and a clarity of mind that I’ll always find invaluable.
What does it mean to you to be part of a thriving ecosystem?
To me, being part of a thriving ecosystem means working both in collaboration and in solidarity with others, each playing our own role in sustaining and nurturing broad webs of connection.
