- My Summary
I love diving and and hope to become a marine reseracher/conservationist. I've been diving in Hawaii, North Carolina, and New Jersey. Advanced Certified. I've lived five minutes from the Atlantic Ocean my whole life. I fell in love with the ocean when I was a little kid and have wanted to work to save marine life for as long as I can remember. Diving has given me a whole new perspective on the ocean and I've been able to see and do things I used to dream about. I love working with marine mammals, sharks, and whales. I've worked closely with sea turtles, sea lions, dolphins, and sting rays at Sea Life Park in Oahu, Hawaii. I also volunteered at the Karen Beasly Sea Turtle Hospital in Wilmington, North Carolina. Marine debris is killing our oceans. We need to start saving and cleaning up the ocean before it is too late. I love the ocean and all that lives there and I can't stand to see it ruined by human waste. It's madness to think that we can use it as a dump and choose to ignore the glaring problem that is sitting and destroying the environment that covers 70% of our earth. Let's work together to save our oceans!
