Hello! My name is Asha. I live in a van in South Wales based mainly on Gower where I have lived my whole life. Being from a family of 10, we spent a lot of time in the sea growing up as it was one of the only spaces that could hold us all.
Spending so much time in the water over the years bodyboarding, surfing, swimming, deep water soloing or coaching paddle boarding, it’s impossible to ignore the daily increase in ocean pollution.
The sea is my office and playground. Most people wouldn’t have to start their day with a litter pick or float alongside sewage. It also blows my mind how little is still being done about single use plastic regulations and encouraging sustainable lifestyle choices amongst consumer habits.
But I can make changes and small daily choices that have a long term impact. And I’d love to empower and help others do the same.
