My name is Chelsea and I am a resident of New York pursuing a degree in Environmental Science at CUNY Queens College. This will be my first time out at sea on a scientific vessel and I am greatly looking forward to the edification this experience will provide me with. The Visions’19 expedition will enable me to interact with cutting edge technologies and people in the most remarkable of environments. Participating in Visions puts me in an auspicious position that will enable me to pursue a career in environmental conservation. I am passionate about finding new and unique ways to approach our planet’s climatic issue while also informing and inspiring the public to become passionate and involved in the matter.
