I have always been passionate about the environment having developed an interest in secondary school. I was involved in obtaining the schools environmental green flag, receiving awards at the Young Scientist Exhibition and winning the National SciFest award. From this it was evident to me that I wanted to be an Energy Engineer which led me to the National University of Ireland, Galway. The ethos in the University for sustainability was and continues to be amazing and I was thrilled to see that even the recently opened Engineering Building was an energy efficient living learning tool for me to explore and learn from.
As a passionate young woman I am adamant that for a sustainable energy future to exist, we must use the world’s natural resources to meet our ever growing energy needs, especially the mighty power of the sea.
