Meet Our Student Leadership Team
The Salish Sea School is committed to creating a community of student leaders and cultivating and preserving a culture of diversity, inclusion, and connectedness. We are able to grow and learn better together with a diverse team. We welcome the unique contributions that one can bring in terms of their education, opinions, culture, ethnicity, race, sex, gender identity and expression, nation of origin, age, languages spoken, veteran’s status, color, religion, disability, sexual orientation and beliefs.
We are stronger together with the collective sum of individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, innovation, self-expression, and talent which ultimately brings about a healthier planet. we are proud to introduce you to our team!
In 2021, the student leaders led an incredible virtual Summit for Southern Resident orcas, participated in a marine debris survey, led a post-card writing campaign in support of the breaching of the lower Snake River dams, and discussed other relevant issues regarding the Salish Sea.
I hope that people become aware of the importance of the marine environment, and its impact on the rest of the world. Also, I hope that plastic, waste, and other types pollution can be mitigated to create a healthier environment.

As pollution, global warming, overfishing, and many other issues are rising I think it is critical we help get the ocean's ecosystems back to normal. I think people could take more time to consider going plastic-free or watch what seafood they eat, my hope is we can help spread the word all over.

I hope that we, as people, can try to preserve the marine environment to the best of our ability so that present and future generations will be able to admire the beauty of it. I also hope that we can further research the marine environment and maximize the knowledge gained about it as time moves forward.
