ABOUT STEPHANIE

Steph Sept 7 2021.jpeg

Hello! I'm Stephanie Quilao and welcome. I am a second generation Filipina, Gen Xer, Vegan, INFP, and former Silicon Valley executive.

In 2021, I decided to become a full-time climate + eco activist and content creator focusing on the interconnection of human health and planetary health with an emphasis on food and the food system.

My intention is to help educate, inspire and galvanize more people to get involved in the climate movement because it is going to take millions of us coming together to help stop the worsening climate emergency and get the bold climate action that is needed at this time.

What lit me into becoming a full-time activist? It was literal fire. My beautiful home state of California is experiencing record breaking wildfires and it's devastating. The climate crisis is literally burning in our face here.

All I know is that I cannot not do anything any more.

On a personal level, I'm also going to share my journey and experience as a new activist in hopes that my sharing emboldens others to do similar especially my fellow Gen Xers.


Our generation may be small but we're mighty. Many Gen Xers are currently in positions of power and influence, and are parents, a caregiver to our parent(s), aunts, uncles, godparents, and even grandparents. We have much to protect for current and future generations.

This is the first time in my life I've ever decided to be an activist. I don't have a plan or know exactly what I'm doing, but I'm rising to the occasion. I'll figure it out along the way like countless others.

I invite you to join! If you're reading this, I'm guessing you're either already on board or you've been thinking about it (a lot, amiright?)

I'm using my skills and training as a former Silicon Valley marketing executive, startup founder, and healthy living + food blogger and social media influencer. I'm treating my new chapter as an activist kinda like it's a startup. I thrive and do my best work when I'm in startup energy.

 

I currently don't have a roadmap of plans or goals, but I do have a clear vision - mobilize millions of people to get involved in the climate movement.

 

For now, what I have been doing is starting out every morning with a simple question, "What can I do today to help the climate movement?"
