Ever since I was a child I dreamt of moving to Cornwall to be by the sea. Now being down here my obsession with it has grown.
I’ve always loved the way being in water can make a person feel and how people dedicate their lives to the ocean because of it. So a couple years ago I decided to join those people and start giving back, to help the sea. I became more aware of the way human impacts can greatly damage the environment so started paying all my attention to it.
Coming from a photographic background I started creating campaigns around the matter and how every person has the power to help. Every person can change the little things in their lives to make a huge positive impact on the world, such as cutting back on Single Use Plastics.
I then joined different marine groups to see what else I could do to help. Starting locally in Falmouth, being inspired by the other amazing volunteers who dedicate their lives to plastic pollution. And now I am incredibly lucky to have been taken on by Surfers Against Sewage to join the Plastic Free Communities team. We focus on helping communities gain the power to change their local environment for the better and I feel that now more than ever it is so important for these movements to happen.
