"I want to have kids. I want to show them this planet," said Phoebe Wahl, a RISD senior. "As artists and designers, we are innovators with the ability to shape our own future. The way that our generation deals with this issue will define the future of civilization."
I interviewed Phoebe earlier this week, and now her words are in the Huffington Post as part of an article on the nation’s first fossil fuel divestment sit-in.
"I think freedom to experiment within the supportive environment of RISD has been invaluable in developing my sense of direction and style in my work," she said in our interview. “I am extremely self motivated, and that has been helped greatly by understanding professors along the way.”
