How IAE Inspired Me:

The vast diversity on the ship -  ages, nationalities and careers, made for such an incredible experience. As someone only just applying to University it was the most wide-ranged introduction to the world I had ever experienced. Add that to the camaraderie of all being so fascinated with the Antarctic and keen to learn from Robert and the team, it was an unforgettable experience that changed my life forever.

What I am doing now:

I am now a freelance photographer and videographer having recently finished a 3 month contract working with Emirates Nature-WWF in Dubai.

Our greatest highlight was to experience the vast scale of remoteness of the Antarctic and its beauty. To see something as pure and seemingly untouchable being destroyed by our species is life-changing.
