My name is Sonja and come from Croatia, from the island of Cres. This October I will be a part of an amazing and super inspiring expedition on a sailboat which will circle the globe in two years time, consisting of an all-female crew and with a goal of collecting scientific data and raising awareness considering plastic pollution in our seas and oceans.

The whole journey around the world will take 2 years and 300 women will join over 30 legs. I'm joining the crew for the first leg of the expedition. We will start our two weeks journey from Plymouth, UK on the 8th of October and set sail to Azores. On our way we, a team of wonderful women, will collect and sample sea water on three levels.

The eXXpedition also hopes to tackle the problem of women in STEM, since women are still underrepresented in science, technology, engineering and maths. As a mechanical engineering student, skipper and a woman raised on the island, surrounded by sea and nature, this eXXpedition represents for me something very important and personal, which affects me deeply.

To make the expedition possible, every crew member must contribute towards the costs of the voyage. Overall my contribution is 5200 £ plus personal expenses such as flight tickets. I would greatly appreciate help to support my cause and any donation will mean a lot! I've prepared some local curiosities, some of them with amazing stories and other small tokens of appreciation for you :)
