Congratulations to Dayris Mañon Arias, the 2022 Aspiring Marine Scientists Scholarship Winner!

A message from Dayris:

I would like to express my sincere appreciation to Marine Order for Research and Action through Environmental Stewardship for the Aspiring Marine Scientist Scholarship. My name is Dayris Mañon Arias, and I am a sophomore at New College of Florida studying to uptain my undergraduate degree in Environmental Studies. I have a passion for Marine & Environmental Conservation and plan on pursuing a career as a Community Outreach Educator for Marine & Environmental Studies. Underrepresented communities in Miami are the most affected by our rising waters and the consequences of climate change but are the least equipped to deal with it. I want to give my community the tools to understand, combat, and protect our ever-changing world.
