Joab is passionate about the environment, and leads his school in their work to tread more lightly on the earth. Joab is deaf, and uses his experiences to make others understand their gifts and responsibilities. He also helps students at a local special school to get to grips with their environmental responsibilities too. Joab is always looking to help with the next initiative. “He is a brilliant, engaging, inspirational yet modest young man, fully deserving of any accolades. What impresses me most is how sincere, enthusiastic and resilient he is,” says his teacher.
