Glori Dei Filippone, a 13-year-old from Iowa, is many things, including an actress, singer, athlete, and big sister. But most importantly, Glori is a connector. She remembers when she was little, driving past factories and thinking the smoke was coming from a cloud machine. When her parents explained that the smoke was actually bad for the Earth, Glori began connecting the dots. Since then, Glori combined her love for learning about our environment with her fortitude for not giving up. TRUST Iowa tells Glori’s story of strength and perseverance as she advocates at the agency level and in the courtroom to ensure we take care of the one and only atmosphere we have.
