You work very closely with the community about sustainability – why is it important to get the whole community involved?
My philosophy when it comes to developing our island or any community is ‘our community – our responsibility’. So, I keep telling people that no one person can succeed doing something, so it is important for every single person to get involved somehow, and believe in the same values for anything to be successful.
What advice can you give to people who would like to live a more sustainable life?
If you want to live a sustainable life, always educate yourself and find more information on how you can make a difference. Act on the 3 Rs: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.
Can you tell us a bit about you?
I am from the island of Kudafari in the Noonu Atoll. I have been working at Soneva Jani for five years, since pre-opening. I am always thinking of ways to live a simple life in a more sustainable way.
What do you do to in your free time?
I like to swim, surf and spend my time in the ocean whenever possible.
