Our School Captain, Sathvika Krishnan, has recently been appointed International Ambassador for Biology by the Young Scientist Journal Outreach Team.
In this role, she is contributing to the Young Scientist Journal social media pages through posts and blogs as well as helping to organise annual conferences. Further tasks involve editing and reviewing biological articles and spreading awareness about the journal itself to younger students. She has even submitted a modified version of her EPQ for publication in the Young Scientist Journal and it has just been accepted for accelerated publication! (to be published in the next month or so)
Back in April, she went live on Instagram with acclaimed environmentalist and activist Elizabeth Carr to interview her about plastic pollution as part of a series dedicated to Earth Week.
In addition to her role as Ambassador for Biology, Sathvika has also been appointed a Youth Council member for Reserva: Youth Land Trust. Reserva is the only youth-funded rainforest in the world and is opening a protected cloud forest in Ecuador. She'll be acting as a panellist on a youth webinar run by The Ocean Project where she will talk about the musicality of birdsong and conservation with the Reserva Trust.
The webinar is taking place next Wednesday, 27th May, at 11pm BST and you can sign up to attend if you're interested. It will be recorded and posted on YouTube after the event (in case you miss it).
Regarding her new roles, Sathvika said:
“I’m really excited to be part of the YSJ Outreach Team and am looking forward to working with young scientists from around the world. I’m also thrilled to be a member of the Reserva: Youth Land Trust Youth Council. Both these roles allow me to share my love for the natural world and encourage other young people to take part in science.”
