Megan engaged in creative activism to help teens and others deepen their understanding of how their individual actions directly impact the oceans and our planet. Through her work, Megan inspired others to adopt more sustainable behaviors such as recycling rather than discarding plastic.

Kids see that our oceans are suffering, and since we’re not yet set in our ways we are open to developing new, positive habits. My hope is that I can help others experience the satisfaction that comes from taking action, so more of us will unite to heal the planet.
