Yo! My name is Jade Salis, and I am a graduate of Coastal Carolina University. I got my BS in marine science, minored in biology and was a graduate of the honors college, but I felt that my experience was lacking. I graduated in December of 2021 so most of my degree took place during the pandemic. I took labs in undergrad where there was some field work, but much was limited, or made virtual. This left me feeling unprepared for life after college.
MISS provides a community and funded opportunities for gender minorities of color who wish to enter the field of shark sciences. We aim to show that there are many gender minorities of color succeeding in and interested in this field.
We fundraise and apply for grants to create paid opportunities to attempt to knock down the financial barrier into shark sciences. We encourage other organizations in our field to do the same.
