Hello and welcome to ecospired.com! My name is Daria, and I’m a recent graduate from the University of Southern California (USC) with a Master’s in Environmental Studies. This site is my small contribution to the greater, loftier, goal of making this earth a more habitable and sustainable planet. Even though some may argue that our individual actions are too small to make a difference, I think that we should always be held responsible for our thoughts and actions. We all have the ability to impact the world and the people in it. Our actions can spur a positive chain reaction; we should never underestimate the power of one individual.
I created the word “ecospired” to epitomize the idea that the environment is inspirational in so many ways. I’ve been inspired to use the earth’s renewable resources for DIY projects, and to reuse and recycle as well.
ec·o·spired |ekō- spīrd| (adj.): exhibiting a creative impulse from the environment
In addition to my passion for environmental initiatives, I am also a harpist, which is why I have this very dramatic professional photo instead of a normal picture of me. I’m working on it! For more harp-related information about me, please visit www.dariasarrafharp.com.
