Impressive journey, Chan! 🌟 The diversified range of activities from cleaning Xochimilco's canals to engaging with indigenous communities, and spearheading a food waste management workshop depict such a holistic approach towards grasping and addressing sustainability issues. It's evident that your time in Mexico City was not only impactful but also a profound learning experience.

Thank you Princess for your kind words! This adventure was indeed a precious opportunity for me to raise public awareness of the alarming food waste problem and polish my leadership skills.
