Best decision ever
I made an irrational decision to head to South Africa in 2016 to work with the Blue Wilderness Research Unit for two months. I truly had no idea what I was getting into I just knew that I wanted to work with big sharks and I wanted to travel somewhere great for that. This decision became one of the best ones I’ve ever made. I met some of the most incredible people in the world in the scientists and crew of Blue Wilderness. I got to experience open water diving and snorkeling with over 20 sharks at a time, and I wouldn’t trade the hands on research for anything.
