Tashi is a recent graduate from the University of Toronto Scarborough with a BSc in International Development Studies. As part of her undergraduate co-op placement, she worked with an NGO in Uganda dedicated to making education accessible and affordable with Income Generating Activities (IGAs) for almost a year, acting as a liaison between the international donors and the stakeholders on the ground. Tashi was also part of the 2018 Students on Ice Arctic Expedition, which inspired her to join Pristine Blue Initiative in its marine conservation efforts. Tashi is interested in climate change-related adaptation strategies with an emphasis on environmental justice and sustainable development. She is keen on advancing ocean literacy and marine conservation efforts embedded within the larger climate change issues and hopes to foster urban community connection to nature through its waters.
