Wyne: During my past activities throughout my work and university years, I have learned that within our ecosystem, humans and animals are dependent on one another. The state of our environment is very important and impacts human life. I am specifically concerned about plastic pollution because sadly in my home city single-use plastics are still widely available and used. The consequence of convenience is visible on every street. As well as being an eyesore, this plastic often finds its way into rivers, and eventually the sea, where it causes significant issues for marine wildlife. I am determined to raise awareness of how easy it is to reduce plastic use, and highlight the impact of people’s actions. When I'm not thinking about new ideas or solutions, I enjoy volunteer work, reading books, delivering public awareness training, or counseling youth. I have a wide variety of interests from policy making, to cooking, to discovering new music, and am constantly questioning the nature of the universe around me.
