I want to make a difference in the world, and helping raise awareness for the pollution in our oceans is one of the ways I can do it

I didn’t know much about the gravity of the issue that is ocean pollution before entering this alternative project and I was shocked to learn of how horrible this problem has gotten. I hope, my experience in this project conveys some of the messages that I wish more people would be conscious of. I think that the main problem with ocean pollution is that people aren’t aware of the consequences their actions can have on the environment, and how perhaps a decision they make now–disposing of a plastic item inappropriately, for example–can have extreme repercussions later.

As a writer, I used the rather loose excuse that any additional experience was good, ultimately beneficial to my skill as a writer. Putting aside the general point that having a wide range of interests is generally beneficial for any lifestyle or career, it took me some time to realise that many of my interests related to one thing, that I ultimately want to express through my writing.
