Each year, Yale University welcomes a small group of exceptional “global leaders” into the Yale World Fellows program. Among 2012 enrollment was Roz Savage, an impressive woman from England who left her job, her house, and her routine life to pursue a life of adventure and environmental advocacy.
She has single-handedly rowed across all the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Oceans to raise awareness on plastics in the oceans.
I had the opportunity to interview her, and learn from her experience, this past November. The interview was recently published on Yale’s Sage Magazine, where you can read it here.
“I’m a real believer in following your curiosity and seeing where it leads you.”
