Young DIYer Spotlight: Carlos Albino, 21
Meet Carlos Albino! Carlos was born in Peru but lived in Antioch for most of his life. He was a former Honors student at Los Medanos College and is currently studying Engineering at UC Santa Barbara. He considers himself “spontaneous.” His spontaneous nature has taken him through many adventures in California’s national parks where he spent hours hiking. His dad taught him how to change his oil and recycle that used oil at a very young age. On top of saving the planet he says, “I was taught to recycle oil because I was never taught any differently.” However as he got older, he understood the importance of recycling and now thanks his dad for instilling recycling in his everyday life. He wants to let all the other young DIYers out there that the resources and beauty of Earth is limited and it is our duty to protect our home.
