Please provide examples of any previous entrepreneurial initiatives you have pioneered.
As a former Zoological of London Edge Fellow ,the training I received in conservation project development and management has been directly applied to the development of YME.
During the development of my TEDx talk "How the Ocean can Inspire a Nation" I was able to experience the power of connecting a local grass roots project to large scale global issues specifically climate change.
Through YME being featured in a documentary at the Natural History Museum of London and the selection for the IDB Juscelino Kubitschek - Award of Merit for Regional Development I realized that YME has the potential for a global impact and as a result it has changed the way I design our programs.
