Hey! My name is Raghda, I am a Mathematics Researcher living and working in Cyprus. I am a mermaid at heart! I love being in the sea more than anything and it pains me to see the sea suffer the consequences of human recklessness and ignorance. Through my work in OceanLove and Blue Odysea, I aim to reconnect people to the water, our first ever home in our mothers wombs.
