About Grace Comerford 

Podcast host, author, blogger, teenager


I have had a passion for the environment for as long as I can remember. A moment that particularly sparked my interest was when I went to the Aquarium of the Pacific in California when I was 8 years old.

Since then, I have been trying to do everything I can do to make a difference for animals and the environment. I have gone to Washington D.C. to speak to officials about the importance of the environment to teens everywhere. I advocated for environmental bills in my senator’s office.

Recently, I have been striving to get my voice heard and find an outlet where I can spread my knowledge to other interested teens. That is why I created my podcast Dream Green and a blog.

Going forward, I want this blog to inspire others and spread ideas on how to help the environment! I also hope to be trying new things and starting cool projects to help inspire, educate, and raise awareness for the environment!
