Hi! I’m Isabel. I am greenteen’s Senior Coordinator and Creative Director. I grew up and live in Chicago, Illinois, with my parents and my younger sister. I love Chicago, Lake Michigan, and my midwestern roots. I enjoy long walks and brisk bike rides along the lake or in a forest or through my neighborhood. I love the beginning of every season, the novelty. I am a meticulous organizer; a neat freak. I admire those who aren’t, and yet they somehow keep everything together. I love to cook food from all of the world, and eat it too. I like fashion and style, I dislike trends. I appreciate a thorough disconnect from electronics. Phones do not belong at the dinner table.
I think that our biggest power remains our ability to love and spread joy. It seems, in a world full of negativity, that is the best thing we can do.
Hello! I’m Sarah. I am greenteen’s Editor in Chief. I was born in Boston and spent a year in Israel, but mainly grew up in Chicago with my parents and brother. I love nature, art, and exploring new places and things! Though composting is not something I was raised to do, I am very interested and conscious of the environment and can not wait to incorporate compositing into my family’s daily routine. When not at school or spending time with friends and family, I enjoy baking, reading, playing the viola, running, and taking photos of nature (usually flowers).
Hey! I’m Julia. I am greenteen’s Director of Operations. As a sophomore in high school, I enjoy journalism, playing and performing music, and co-running an exercise club with Isabel. I also have a passion for traveling (especially overseas), animals, and camp counseling in the summer. I have always adored my hometown of Chicago, where I have grown up with my older brother and sister, who are both college students. I look forward to growing my personal horizons through greenteen and improving my own lifestyle to be more environmentally friendly.
Hey, I’m Myles. I am greenteen’s Director of Technology. I enjoy playing soccer and video games, and love hanging out with friends and family, especially when there’s no school. I savor any vacation I can get, as well as traveling to many different destinations. I have had a passion for technology ever since I was a young child. I was born in Chicago and have lived there ever since with my mom, dad, and two brothers. I love to bake lots of different desserts, and to make and edit short films.
Hi! My name is Sisley and I’m greenteen’s Marketing and Media Director. I am a sophomore in high school and I live on the south side of Chicago. I have two younger siblings, who can be a pain, but I love them nonetheless. In my free time, I like to read and hone my photography skills. I also enjoy playing golf—something everyone in my family plays except my mom (Mom, I’m exposing you). I love listening to Grouplove, HAIM, and Saint Motel. When I hang out with my friends we always order Mediterranean food and geocache. I’m a sucker for romcoms and Marvel movies. I also watch way too much TV, but I’m not addicted to my phone. In thirty years, I hope that I’ve traveled to every continent. I have an adventurous spirit, so I love trying new things, and greenteen is my next adventure.
