Amira’s work in a campaign titled “No Más Botellas” at the University of Puerto Rico was successful in making one of their campuses the first Latin American University to ban the sale of bottled water. She has represented her country at the UN Climate talks and been a part of the Sierra Student Coalition training program, facilitating leadership workshops to youth in Puerto Rico and the United States.
