Community Liaison Officer, Blue Ventures
My name is Jemima Gomes. I am from Ataúro Island. I started with Blue Ventures in 2016 and I joined Blue Ventures as a dive and science assistant and have since transitioned to community liaison officer. I have been involved in dive science training with international volunteers and now I am using those skills to train a Timorese reef motoring team. I also work with community to do seagrass monitoring, and I am really enjoying my work because I can work directly with the community and help them to understand more about marine life and the benefit of it.
