Wait a minute, I'm the somebody who can make a difference.
With every hike, walk on the beach, or time spent outdoors, I would pick up trash and plastics. It had become a habit of being outdoors but I'd always complain that 'somebody should be doing something about this'. Then one day, I realized I was the somebody who could make a difference. I started volunteering at Cura Oceanus, 'Care of the Oceans' in Latin. And I love it! I give my time, my money, and my skill set to help them find ways to use technological tools to make the world a better place. Cura Oceanus is near and dear to my heart and aligned with my passions. They use robots and sensors to help children learn how to solve the problems of tomorrow today. They engage the kids with hands-on projects that ignite the imagination and create the next generation of dreamers. I love that STEAM-RI (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math with Respect and Imagination) is a central theme for them that is based on their mission of education, mitigation and reduction. Not only am I helping children, the oceans and the planet, I get to run around town with a robot in my car! I'm so grateful I found a way to give back. I love nature, being outdoors, and in the water. Cura Oceanus gives me hope that we can make a difference.
