Madison Lent - Marine Biology Student
Hello everyone my name is Madison Lent, I grew up, and still live in, Tiverton, NS. I’m beyond excited to start the first journey of my future career in marine preservation with SOAR this summer on my very own island.
I’m 17 years old and will be entering my final year of high school at Islands Consolidated in the Fall. At this moment, my future career plans are to go to Dalhousie University and become a Marine Biologist, therefore I am very grateful for this opportunity and I can’t wait to make a difference and to learn more about the ocean and everything it has to offer!
