A Chat with Carmelle

Q: Can you please introduce yourself? 

I’m Carmelle Cachero.  I am one of the ASL interpreters for 12.  I live on the unceded territory of the Algonquin Anishnaabe (Colonially known as Ottawa).

Q: What does being in 12 mean to you? 

I feel honoured to be invited to share the stage with these amazing youth who are sharing their message to the world.  It means a lot that the whole team involved in 12 recognizes the importance of making their message accessible to the Deaf community.

Q: What’s your favorite part of the natural world? Why? 

Being alone and looking on when the sun is just rising, starting a new day, and the smell of an early summer morning.

Q: What’s one of your specific Climate Change worries? 

I am worried about the amount of waste we produce as humans and that we are running out of time to remedy the situation.

Q: What’s a question you’d like to ask anyone you could about Climate Change? 

What can you do to reduce waste and encourage others to do the same?

Q: When the audience leaves 12, you hope they will : 

Make a real effort to make the changes they can as an individual to be more mindful of their impact on the whole.

Q: What’s your favorite word?
