My name is Riley and am a senior at Edmonds Woodway high school. I have been living in the Puget Sound region all my life. Since the first time I was introduced to the ocean I have felt an intimate connection to it as the veins of life, and have maintained a diving fascination for its beauty. Because of its eroding health, my love for the ocean makes me feel obliged to take part in preserving its longevity. I decided to join the Puget Sound: We Love You Campaign in order to be part of the ocean conservation movement I strongly believe in. I am really looking forward to the positive impact we can have on our environment!
