Since I was a child, I have always been fascinated by the natural world of science – from the universe to an atom. From looking up to the night sky to looking at my natural surroundings, I have always been filled with wonder. Being involved in the cold-climate geomorphology in Antarctica project is one way of satisfying my curiosity for the natural world, most especially because it is an area where knowledge is still limited. In addition, getting to explore new places in search of knowledge, especially Antarctica is very rewarding and exciting.

As a keen adventurist, I have always loved the outdoors and anything involving the natural world. High school stemmed a passion in geography and it is something I have continued to my university career. I got involved in this project as I am passionate about the work that they are doing and I hope that one day I can contribute my part. It has been a great adventure and a huge learning experience and it has only furthered my interest in physical geography.
