Gisela López Béjar

EarthEcho Water Challenge Ambassador

Barcelona, Spain

Gisela López Béjar is an 18-year-old student studying at the University of Barcelona in the Faculty of Primary Education. Since she was little, her grandfather instilled and taught her love and appreciation for flora and fauna, not only as another species but as an equal. So, once she learned that passion for the world and her curiosity, she helped clean beaches among others. In addition, as a child she helped her father in fish tank care, where she learned to calculate pH and dissolved oxygen. When she is not studying at the University, she tries to learn on her own different ways to help the environment, even if it is on a small scale. She also seeks new educational opportunities focused on marine science, so that in the future she can instill them in future generations.
