Hey yall, my passion for our planet can not be expressed in just a few sentences. In turn, each day I strive to contribute positively to our earth. For me this means eating a vegan diet (six years strong), living an active lifestyle, advocating for clean products, and using LNT principles wherever I travel. Furthermore, I enjoy making music, outdoor activities, and interacting with others. Additionally, I am engaged in conversations surrounding mindfulness based stress reduction which are implemented in my daily activities. Moreover, I want to continue spreading love and knowledge, with hopes to bring more sustainable solutions to our shared planet. One love.
Soraya Simi is a 22-year-old ocean-minded filmmaker and environmentalist. Born and raised in Tucson, Arizona, she spent her days exploring the desert alongside her twin brother, fostering her deep love for the outdoors from an early age. Despite being desert rats, a deep love for water and the ocean was felt for as long as she can remember.
Soraya started film and photography when she was 14, and once she learned filmmaking was a legitimate subject you could study in college, she set her sights on USC. Now in her final year at USC's film school in Los Angeles, Soraya has combined her passion for storytelling with her desire to be outside, actively bringing awareness to and protecting the environments that offer her so much. She also hopes to engage other young women in this style of outdoor filmmaking, as their inclusion is vital to hearing stories that have yet to be told.
