Ever since I was a child, my friends and family always knew me as someone who would be in the water somewhere. I’ve always been an ocean lover and water baby. Waters always played such an important part in my life, when I’m in the ocean I immediately feel refreshed, happy and a sense of freedom that can’t be found anywhere else.
Growing up near a coastal environment is beautiful I don’t have the feeling of being trapped in by buildings like in a city because the Wirral is a peninsula surrounded by water on all its sides. And being by the water provides great wonders, awe and adventure. It’s home to me, feeling the sea air, sand between your toes and the sound of the waves, everything. I’ll never forget the feeling of catching my first wave it was like a gift the ocean gave to me.
With this love for being around the coast and in the ocean I can’t help but feel the need to help. For all the joy the water has brought me it needs my help, we need to protect our coastal environments and raise awareness of how to protect it. The wildlife in our oceans love their home, and as humans instead of destroying it we should all learn to love it too. And that’s why I have joined the SAS team, their love for the beaches, waves, oceans and wildlife fits in with exactly mine.
