I have an affinity to water and revel any opportunity to go to the sea. Travelling has provided me with many unique opportunities from exploring the UK coasts to diving in Iceland to kayaking in New Zealand. It also revealed, first hand, the extent of marine pollution and the need to treat our earth with personal responsibility and global concern.
Working towards my MSci Degree in Oceanography at Southampton and volunteering at the Natural History Museum in London, I gained an in-depth scientific knowledge of the earth’s system. The predictions of anthropogenic pollution I witness are a truly terrifying prospect to continue to the future.
Giving up single use plastics to raise money and awareness through social media has sparked further drive to fight against consumerism and waste culture by changing people’s attitudes to strive for sustainable living.
Elected President of the University of Southampton’s Marine Conservation Society (USMCS) we aim to inspire and educate the community to protect our coastlines by organising beach cleans, talks, guest speakers, residential trips and social events. Teaming up with SAS and my fellow Southampton Reps we will send ripples out about our mission.
