Be the first to know about our second expedition by signing up below.
My journey began with experiencing depression in college and led me to become the only person ever to row solo from California to Hawaii as their first ocean row.
In between, I became one of the youngest delegates to attend the World Economic Forum and earned an MBA from London Business School while running some of the UK’s longest ultra-marathons. I’ve also had my share of turbulent times. In 2016, I experienced radical loss when my father took his own life – an event which inspired me to become and ocean rower. And as a professional, I’ve moved through many changing tides. Navigating those challenges has ultimately propelled my growth.
I believe we all have an “ocean” to cross, and the United World Challenge is my mission to inspire others to find their ocean and the courage to cross it.
Set a goal so big, you have to grow into the person who can achieve it.
The Challenge is supported by adventure, medical, and marine science experts, plus a coalition of world-class media partners and expedition sponsors.
The Ocean Is Our Planet’s Life Support System
After completing Expedition 1, I kept thinking about the ocean. Its health determines ours. I started asking, what now? What's next? What’s a goal so big that I have to grow into the person who can achieve it? A goal so big, it inspires others to grow with me?
And so the next step with the United World Challenge?
It came to me that it's not just about completing another expedition, but to do so in a way that brings researchers, companies, and storytellers together to create tangible results for the ocean by:
There's never been a more critical time to connect with our oceans. We have to take action now, because if we lose the oceans, we lose everything.
We get to take action to protect and restore the oceans, so we never lose our most vital connection to the waters that fuel all of who we are.
When we protect the oceans, we protect us all.
Interested in getting involved with Expedition 2?
Sponsorship is more than just a good story. It’s about pursuing a vision greater than the sum of the parts. It’s about making impact neither partner could achieve alone.
In short, it’s about crossing oceans together.
