Major Announcement Coming Soon
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 on their first attempt.
In between, I became one of the youngest delegates ever 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. My Dad suicided in 2018. 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 successfully completing Expedition 1, I kept thinking about the ocean and how its health determines ours. So, I started asking— What now? What’s next? What’s a goal so big, I get to grow into the person who can achieve it? A goal so big, it inspires others to grow and care with me?
And so the next step with the United World Challenge?
Invite researchers, storytellers, companies, and individuals all together to create the biggest splash we can for our oceans. Together we can:
Because there’s never been a more critical time to connect with the vast bodies of water on our earth and each other.
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.
