Age 15, 2nd Cohort U.S. Youth Advisory Council UN Ocean Decade Member


Being a part of the U.S. YAC UNOD was a great experience!

I loved working with all the members together and my team separately to accomplish actual feasible goals. The program definitely met my expectations because it provided an enriching experience where I could help make a difference in terms of ocean conservation and environmental advocacy. Working on the AGU presentation taught me how to present to an audience of scientists, professors, etc in an actual scientific conference.

I definitely pushed my comfort zone as I had to interact with many people and deliver essentially an “elevator pitch” on what the U.S. YAC is. I also learned how to network, communicate on the spot, and speak confidently.
