Nyiesha Mallett is an artist and Climate Justice Youth leader. Nyiesha was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York and grew up in a Caribbean household. Her mother was born on the island of Grenada, so she understands the massive effects that climate change has on Caribbean countries of color like Puerto Rico and Grenada who contribute the least to climate change but experience the brunt of the crisis. Nyiesha joined UPROSE in 2015 at the age of 14 not knowing much about climate change but rose to leadership. In 2017, she spoke at the People’s Climate March Rally. In 2019 Nyisha was a co-organizer of the Climate Justice Youth Summit.
