My names Mia and I am currently studying Natural Sciences (Biology) whilst working as an animal information host within an aquarium. I have been offered the opportunity to go and take up an internship as part of a research team going out and studying/researching breeding and conservation projects in Thailand for an entire summer. I have recently discovered a massive passion for working with fish and would truly love to work with them for the rest of my life! I wish to continue education after my current degree and go on to study marine biology and this internship would be an amazing step in the right direction. I hope to raise awareness about the wonderful creatures that live in our oceans and how important they are to the planet and would love to do this through promoting my adventure on social media for all donators to follow. I would love to take this trip in when I have finished my degree and hopefully have raised plenty of awareness! This is a paid internship but I have to pay before I get out there. When I do get paid, because I have raised the money to get out there, I would like to donate 50% of my earnings between many conservation and ocean/animal based charities. I feel this would truly benefit not only my life but also the wonderful creatures and also the people who follow my adventure. I hope to inspire people whilst making a difference! Thank you for taking the time to read this and for donating! I hope you chose to follow my adventure!
