My name is Christopher Karle. I live in Ridgefield, Connecticut and will be graduating from Immaculate High School in 2022. I am passionate about health, wellness, and sustainability, so I founded Head2Toe where we donate hand-knitted baby hats to hospitals and community centers to support the health of infants; made adult hats from recycled cloth to improve the wellness of the homeless through the Midnight Run Organization; and recycle gently used shoes to Soles4Souls to outfit people in poverty-stricken areas both domestically and internationally. I received the Connecticut Association of Boards of Education Student Leadership Award for my diplomacy, ability to work with others, willingness to take on challenges, and ability to honor commitments (2018). I am an active member of Lions Heart, a community service based group, where I have earned both the Bronze and Gold President’s Volunteer Service Award for 50 and 100+ hours of service respectively (2017, 2018). I have also been a Peer Mediator for 3 years. Athletically, I am a member of the GMS Rowing Club. Learning to row has taught me perseverance, hard work, and teamwork. I strive to use my knowledge and skills to work collaboratively with my team and our business partner. I am honored to work with the International Business Internship Program and to participate in the International Leadership and Business Summit in order to provide creative solutions to our Nigerian partners

Our Solutions

Solution 1

Build the activated carbon filter that I helped design over the summer. The carbon will take the chlorine out of the water, which will allow him to have a much higher fish yield. The activated carbon will be attached placed in a filter bag and attached to the water pipe above each of his indoor tanks by a hose clamp. The carbon is the same material that is used in conventional fish tanks to remove toxins, such as chlorine. Before sending the materials to Nigeria, I would like to build one and test the solution at my house, so that I can make sure the filter will work for him. This would require me to get some activated carbon, a filter bag, and some chlorine test strips. An additional aspect of the solution was printing him a chart on which he can more accurately track the mortality rate of his fish. This would only require a ream of paper.
