Hi, I’m Eleanor and I am thrilled to introduce myself as the first ‘Big Blue Rising Star’ in marine conservation! I am a product design engineering student at Loughborough University with a passion for design, sustainability and the outdoors.

I am so excited to take on this internship with Big Blue and VivaLab in Portugal and have the opportunity to develop my skills and passion in a way that is kind to our planet. 

I cannot wait to work with some amazing people who share this passion to challenge conventions, think boldly and contribute to protecting our oceans with the support of Big Blue Foundation and the generous donors that made this internship possible.
