Q: Can you please introduce yourself?

I’m Leokadia and I play Character #11. She’s the one who is like a “bystander” until she decides to join the others. I’m in 10th grade and I live in Ottawa.

Q: What does being in 12 mean to you?

I feel that 12 has given me a voice in a conversation that I’m otherwise unable to be a part of. Maybe it’s even what really opened my eyes in the first place and gave me incentive to change.

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

I have a big soft spot for forests because they’re reminiscent of my childhood at camp.

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

Extinction. Will we go first, or will our planet?

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

Understand the pressure they’ve put on teenagers and see that we really do care.

Q: What’s your favourite hobby?

Writing stories or playing guitar.

Q: What’s your favourite word?
