“I would like to show my appreciation to the Asian Institute of Technology and the Japanese Government for enabling me to accomplish this master’s in Marine Plastic Abatement. This program prepared and equipped me to be one of the new generations of environmental leaders to use my expertise and training in combating plastic litter, especially in aquatic environments using advanced technologies and management practices that I have learned.
Many people are not aware of the effects of microplastics, therefore being equipped with such knowledge will help me sensitize communities about environmental sustainability and conservation and proper handling of plastic litter.”
