Ocean Wise Alum – 2021 Ocean Bridge Cohort
A bit about me:
I am currently in my final year studying on the unceded traditional territories of the Coast Salish peoples, including the Tsleil-Waututh, Kwikwetlem, Squamish, and Musqueam Nations at Simon Fraser University. I am a psychology and sociology student passionate about the human condition and seeing how different systems interact to impact people. A fun fact about myself is that I am half-blind. I am interested in a few different ocean-related issues such as microplastics in the oceans, and the interconnectedness of climate change, the ocean, and Indigenous peoples. I am privileged to be born and raised in BC, so I remember taking a trip to the traditional territory of the Squamish, Sechelt, and Tla’amin and Klahoose nations in the Sunshine Coast and seeing the biodiversity in the shallow tide pools.
What gets me up in the morning:
A good cup of black coffee, good food, the beautiful BC sun, and the opportunity to learn and create a better planet.
Fun fact about me:
I like sea otters, specifically females, and I think bivalves are pretty cool.
