M A R I N E C O N S E R V A T I O N | MIA MIA
Jennifer Skoczylas I nominate my great friend Mia Mia! In the years I have known her, Mia is one of the most intelligent, articulate, passionate and vocal supporters of marine conservation, that I have the pleasure of knowing. Her knowledge of marine issues, specifically sharks is astounding and she is always willing to share her knowledge pertaining to these issues with anyone. When Mia is not busy studying, she is spending many hours volunteering across the campus to improve the quality of life for students, by being a staunch ally and empathetic advocate for the most vulnerable, and marginalized students. #SpontaneousGoodwill #DoGoodPaulWalkerFoundation
Olja Najbolja Paul Walker Foundation I nominate my sister Mia Mia for always helping people around her, she is super passionate about helping sharks from being extinct and finning. Every birthday she donates money to WWF where the funds go to helping sharks from being endangered. She is fascinated with marine biology and this would mean so much to her as Paul Walker was and still is one of most inspirational people to her. She hopes to one day get the chance to swim with a Great White in the open #spontaneousGoodwill
H U M A N I T A R I A N | SAMUIL BARANYUK
@mallorypaigep This is my boyfriend Sam in Matamoros, Mexico. It is a city that has been taken over by crime and poverty and isn't considered the safest place to go. But regardless of the circumstances, he has been visiting there every summer for several years to do construction work for the locals as well as food distribution. But above all, he has such a heart for the people of Matamoros. He looks forward to visiting with them every year and doing what he can to help make their lives just a little brighter in such a dark place. It's what keeps him coming back. Paul's legacy and ROWW have also been huge inspirations in his life. I couldn't be more proud of what he has done and what he continues to do! #SpontaneousGoodwill @paulwalkerfdn
