Born and raised in Paris, I spent most of my childhood having limited access to the natural world. From our annual trips to the coast of France grew a deep passion and respect for the ocean as I found myself drawn to nature.
Back in 2017, I had the opportunity to study in California, where not only did I discover surfing, but had the chance to work towards empowering many students to take action on climate change issues. From there, I was hooked and decided to move to Cardiff to study a masters in Sustainability and Environmental Policy, during which year I discovered the amazing work of Surfers Against Sewage.
I was fortunate enough to work for SAS as a Face to Face Fundraiser the following summer, where not only did I get to raise awareness about the urgent need for healthier oceans, but also meet so many inspiring activists from all walks of life, all working towards a better relationship between humans and the natural world.
I have seen first-hand the devastating impact humanity is having on our planet, but I have also seen the amazing things communities can achieve when working together. We live in a critical moment, when immediate action is necessary, but positive and lasting environmental change is still possible. Which is why I feel incredibly lucky and excited to be joining SAS again, as a Community and Events Administrator, and working with our brilliant community of volunteers towards that goal.
My favourite place to be is outside, whether I am hiking, swimming or trying to surf (hopelessly).
