Ruby is from rural NSW and is currently undertaking a degree in International Development. Ruby is a member of the OzGREEN Board and the YLTW Global Council. She is passionate about environmental issues and making change in the world. This environmental activism was inspired by her experience with OzGREEN’s Youth Leading the World (YLTW) programs. She first participated in YLTW in 2010 when she was a year 7 student. She went on to influence her family to reduce their eco-footprint to “one planet living”. Ruby trained as a YLTW Facilitator in 2012 and has helped to run multiple YLTW Congresses in Australia, India, Nepal, Cambodia and Vietnam.
In October 2013, Ruby was invited to speak at the BellingenTEDx event.
