Social media manager

Hey there! My name is Keelyn and I am a 14-year-old freshman in high school from Colorado. I love traveling the world and broadening my experiences. I met Zuzanna when we were both attending an ecology conservation program in Costa Rica and she introduced me to Thriving Corals. Seeing how passionate she was about saving and conserving the coral reefs inspired me to join as well. It brings me joy knowing that I am making a difference in the world and Thriving Corals was my next opportunity to benefit the planet again.

Mariyam Minha Mufeed

Social media manager

Hi! My name is Mariyam Minha Mufeed. I’m a  10th grader and I am also the first female captain of my school. I am from on of the many islands of Maldives. I always had an interest for the vast blue ocean surrounding us. What led me to help to raise awareness on environmental issues is due to the rise in beach erosion in Maldives. I couldn’t continue seeing my islands natural beauty being wiped away year by year.
