Danielle Sipp is a 16 year old high school student living in Gary, Indiana. She enjoys creative writing, public speaking and championing causes that are near to her heart, like saving the environment. She received a 2020 Youth Environmental Award from Save the Dunes, was chosen to participate in the 2020 Iowa Young Writers' Studio and has been part of the award-winning Take Bike the Streets Initiative since 2015.) She joined the Bike and Pedestrian Plan Team because she thinks it is very important that the young people of Gary have their voices heard from the start of city projects. She hopes you will join her in the Google Class to help Gary decide how to plan to make our city a greener, safer, easier place to get around.
