On March 4, I gave a speech to 400 Grade 7 to Grade 12 high school girls as well as 100 female teachers representing Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) - this was the theme related to celebrating International Women's Day.
There are many problems we face in the world and I believe that the more we learn from educating ourselves about things we fear the better we'll feel about a lot of things.
The Internet can be a really helpful tool if you are looking to learn more about topics that are of interest to you or to help you stop being afraid or misinformed about something you might not really understand.
Sharks are my thing and I love to myth-bust about them. As I say in my speech - they are just curious fish with really big teeth. No need for them to have a bad reputation yet movies like Jaws and Sharknado and even TV shows like Shark Week send the wrong message.
I hope you'll watch my presentation. I'm always happy to talk about saving our planet, our oceans and endangered marine life.
