I realize it has been over a month since I have posted! I had just written a blog post about graduating and this year’s future plans… and after I posted it I went to Face-Book and was reading some of the emails on my page. I had a message from Amy and Jackson with a video they made about Shark Fining. I’m glad I came across it right after I wrote that last blog, because it reminded me what really pushed me into the world of animal activism. I had come home from school one day, and my dad said we were all going to watch this movie called, “Shark Water” (a film by Rob Stewart). For all of you who have not watched it, PLEASE DO. This movie completely changed my life! I started scuba diving because I wanted to dive with sharks. I couldn’t wait till I was old enough to go out and defend them!
Little did I know I would be at The Cove soon after, because that movie also had a huge affect on me.
I posted a blog about shark fining last December, because Mattel came out with this horrible toy promoting the idea to kids. Mattel wants kids to kill sharks
If you aren’t familiar with Amy and Jackson, they are a newly married couple who saw the movie Sharkwater and decided to omit Shark Fin Soup at their wedding. You can find their website by clicking here…
I just wanted to talk a little bit about shark fining, because the issue is important to me and I know something has to be done about it soon. I think sharks are beautiful and amazing animals, and I hope you educate your friends and families about the issues of shark fin soup and shark products.
The world needs Sharks! Don’t let them be whipped out, over a bowl of soup!

I also want to thank everyone for the AMAZING comments and support I received on my Face-book page after graduation! I’m excited I can share this next chapter of my life with you all. I leave for Australia at the end of summer and I can’t wait to blog some more!!!!
