Maria Goikhberg - Scotland National Coordinator
University of St. Andrews C'22
Maria Goikhberg is from Toronto, Canada, currently living in London, UK. She has always loved spending time outdoors, going on camping trips as well as pursuing interests in diving. After receiving the PSAI Open Water Diver certificate, she wanted to do more. This led her to become more actively involved in her school’s environmental club, participating in forest cleanups and tree planting. She spread the “These Come From Trees” campaign to reduce use of paper towels in the school’s bathrooms and organized assemblies to raise students' awareness of pollution and carbon footprints. Maria studies English Literature and Modern History at the University of St Andrews in Scotland and is thrilled to be doing more for the environment through ThinkOcean. In her spare time, Maria enjoys portrait photography, writing screenplays for short films, and reading.
