Erica Dunne is the winner of 2021 Linda J. Zhang Award for Writing Achievement

Here we showcase an environment-themed writing by her as part of the award. She wrote a story about “Billie”, the elephant from the elephant’s perspective. In her words, working on this writing piece has given her “a chance to reflect on the environment and our relationship to it”. We hope her writing will also inspire more people to reflect our relationship with nature, animals and the earth, as we are all part of the ecosystem that should coexist in harmony.
