Global Green Room Staff Interview: Sharon Williams

staff_sharonMeet Sharon Williams, the receptionist in our Santa Monica office. Who is your hero?

My sister Linda, battled cancer for over three years and put up a good fight. She was a caring and loving person who fed the homeless in her neighborhood. She taught me to never give up on what I believe in; stay true to myself and do something in life that's going to have a positive impact on people.

What has been your greatest success at work?

Sharing what I've learned at work with family and friends.

What about a failure or challenge?

Failure is not an option when you're an environmentalist. You are determined to succeed in order for your great-great grandchildren to live in a sustainable world. It's the challenges we face today with non-believers.

Favorite green book?

"The Lorax." As an environmental grandparent, I try to find ways to engage my grandchildren in caring more for the environment. This was perfect for that.

Favorite green movie?

"The 11th Hour." It reveals the challenges we're facing on this beautiful planet and easy, simple solutions every individual can participant in.

Favorite way to spend a free day?

I love spending time with my grandchildren, teaching them about the environment and having fun while doing it.

If you had the power to make one global and green change, what would it be?

I would free the world of nuclear power and install solar panels for every household/business. Then, build green urban communities for all in need of housing (clean water, organic gardens, green schools). No more poverty.
