Rachel, 25, is currently living and working in Leeds, UK, in the Banking industry. However her family & friends know her best for being an outdoor and adventure enthusiast! In her spare time, you’ll find her exploring the Yorkshire Dales, or planning her next travel adventure! She has solo travelled several times, and hiked through beautiful regions of our planet, including South America, New Zealand, Yellowstone, Mont Blanc and the Canadian Rockies (to name a few!).
From a very early age, she has been enthusiastic about wildlife, but in particular environment conservation and sustainable living. Then in 2018, she visited the Galapagos Islands, where she volunteered on conservation projects with giant tortoises and single use plastic research projects. This experience only heightened her interest in understanding the plastic problem further. She’s both excited and nervous to see first hand, how bad the plastic pollution has become in the Pacific.
