" I am excited to be a Millennium Fellow because it will give me opportunities that I did not have before. This will also allow me to spread the importance of ocean conservation while meeting people passionate about their own causes. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: The Clean Ocean Initiative
This endeavor would assist in removing unwanted items from our oceans. The project would remove trash from the ocean and would remake them into reusable products. An ultimate goal is to expand recycling efforts that partner business and governments to develop policies that address plastics and other trash disposal into the oceans.
The goal for this project would be to gather 500 pounds of trash from Broward and Miami-Dade County with local beach cleanups.
About the Millennium Fellow
Mia Joseph was part of a military family and grew up in many places across the United States. She is currently a sophomore at Nova Southeastern University and majors in Business Management with a minor in International Studies. She currently lives in a small beach community and that's where her love of the ocean really became important to her.
Mia started small and began to support many business and causes that worked towards ocean conservation. She also inspired her family and those around here to cut down on single uses plastics. She also does turtle walks to deepen her understanding of marine life and what she can do to help them. When Mia graduates she hopes to work in a business that works toward ocean conservation and travel the world.
