Describe what are you working on in the field of climate change, environmental protection, environmental justice or social impact.

I am co-founder and Vice president of the MERITO Foundation. A non for profit environmental group dedicated to protect the ocean by facilitating education, conservation, and scientific research opportunities to multicultural youth and their communities. We increase students' understanding of the importance of the ocean in their lives, awareness of ocean-related threats, and the adoption of environmentally friendly practices so that we all contribute to ocean protection. We also strive to motivate diverse youth to pursue science, technology or engineering careers that relate to the ocean.
