With her motto of “Be Brave” Mikaela is a young upcoming water girl and charger that truly understands the importance of keeping our oceans clean. Not only for a healthy environment but for the future of our planet. She advocates continuously about reducing the need for single-use plastics and helping to clean our beaches and oceans.
Mikaela has grow up in the ocean enjoying all it has to offer from being a highly competitive surfer, to paddle boarding and now probably one of the youngest girls to be foil boarding in the world. Mikaela wants to protect our ocean and its wonders for generations to come. She believes this starts with each and every person doing what is right. This includes leaving no trace and to do your part when it comes to keeping our beaches clean. Part of her Be Brave motto is to promote her one piece at a time effort. If every person who stepped on a beach left no trace but also picked up even a single piece of trash how much better would we all be?
In addition to advocating an ocean-friendly lifestyle, Mikaela’s life goals include the ocean at every step. From continuing her competitive surfing career to following a dream of becoming a marine biologist where she hopes to make a positive impact on the health of our oceans and its creatures.
