The Real Maxwell Kennedy-Reid

Hello everyone my name is Maxwell Kennedy-Reid and I will be a Lead Harbor Explorer this summer at Save The Harbor.  This is my first year with the program and after meeting Bruce I can say that I am very excited to have the opportunity to serve such a passionate organization with such a positive message.  I love having fun, cracking jokes and living life to the fullest but I suppose you want to know a little more than that.

I grew up in Cambridge Massachusetts and then moved to Medford in 6th grade.  I have always been a fan of the ocean ever since I was a kid because I love going to the beach with friends and family.  Whenever I am there I feel relaxed and at times away from the world, meaning away from the stress of school, jobs and life as a whole.  I have always viewed the ocean as an escape away from reality because its so beautiful and peaceful whenever I go to see it.  Every summer my friends and I spend a majority of our time at Nahant beach playing volleyball, lacrosse or just catching a swim and enjoying the beautiful summer days and nights, we can spend hours on top of hours there which unfortunately turns into a problem when we forget to re-apply sunblock (so pretty much every time) but it also leads to great adventures and even better memories.

Although I may not be the most educated and informed about the ocean I truly do enjoy it.  I am someone who is grateful to have the chance to serve Save The Harbor and learn more about the great beaches and other bodies of water we aim to protect while having fun and meeting everyone through sports and other activities.  Im also a huge fan of sports I play Lacrosse at Stonehill College and many intramural sports in my free time to stay active and because of my love for athletics.  Im excited to start the program and can't wait to meet you all.
