ABOUT Brigitta

Brigitta is a scholarship student at Australian Independent School Indonesia, currently taking the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. As a competitive swimmer, she has been selected as one of 20 athletes for Toyota Indonesia’s “Start Your Impossible” Program. Growing up in the tropical islands of Indonesia has allowed her to witness firsthand the detrimental effects of human misconduct, ever since she took her first baby steps on the shores of Bali. As a translator for Bye Plastic Bags Jakarta, Brigitta actively contributes to being part of a youth organization to raise awareness and push for change. She is also the head of publications, leader, and designer of her school’s ocean conservation club, AIS Blue Team, which advocates protecting the ocean and its marine wildlife. Keen on pursuing a degree in marine biology, Brigitta is passionate about staying informed about the urgent need to implement marine protected areas across the globe, knowing that world leaders must act now. She, along with ten youth leaders from Angola, Argentina, Brazil, British Virgin Islands, India, Malaysia, and Mexico, was part of the inaugural OceanEcho 30x30 Fellowship, a paid, virtual experience that united these young environmentalists ages 17-25 to develop impactful initiatives in their communities, elevating support for marine protected areas and the 30x30 ocean goal.
