Help Mike Save the World
Organized by: Mike Trapp
Do you desire to positively impact the world? While doing so would you be interested in helping a young man further his education and achieve his dream? If you answered yes to either of these question I invite you to take moment to hear my story. My name is Mike Trapp, I was born and raised in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Since a young age I have been passionate about arts and sciences. Someday I would love to become a wildlife photographer/field biologist. I push closer to reaching this goal each day. I have worked for multiple different photography firms; I also take part in numerous conservation organizations. I am currently studying Biology, Studio Art, and Chemistry at Carthage College in Kenosha, Wisconsin. With the cost of tuition on the rise my dream becomes more implausible. From a recent media posting I have conjured a solution. As a college student I am constantly looking for ways to live more efficiently. I have begun drawing up plans to build my very own tiny home. With this home I will be able to chop the cost of housing down to a fraction of what I'm paying the school. Money saved from housing will go into paying off my student debt. Less debt enables me to afford camera gear, as well as fund me on research/conservation based trips. Not to mention that this house will provide a place for me to live after I graduate. I will also be working on this project for my senior thesis. It encapsulates all of my majors very well. I will be taking copious notes and doing plenty of research throughout the building process to make sure my home is environmentally friendly and well designed. This home does more than kickstart my future, it takes a step in the right direction for the world. Tiny homes have a miniscule Carbon footprint. like I said, I plan on my home being environmentally friendly. I will achieve this by powering it with sustainable, renewable energy, such as solar and wind. When considering overpopulation, the cost of housing, and environmental instability a tiny home seems like a valid solution. If you agree with anything that I say please take a moment to fund the start of my future as well as the future of our planet. Thank you!
