Making Waves for the Second Summer!

Hello all, it's Vinh and this will be my second summer back at the amazing organization that is Save the Harbor/Save the Bay! I'm currently a rising senior at one of the three exam schools in the city of Boston, the John D. O'Bryant School of Mathematics and Science (Quite a mouthful, I know). As a child I have had the amazing privilege to live literally a three minute walk from Savin Hill Beach, where I would go for a swim or enjoy the aquatic life present. This passion for swimming and the marine environment influenced me to join my school's swim team and AP Environmental Science class.

My swimming teammates and I (smack dab in the middle of the picture), enjoy a moment at one of our swim meets.

I am very well aware that many kids that live throughout Boston have not had the opportunities that I have had to get out and enjoy the captivating experiences Boston Harbor has to offer. As an ambassador of STH/STB it is integral that I help such kids do so!
