Eloise Rose Enrico Lopez is a student at the Northern Marianas College pursuing her Bachelor’s in Elementary Education. Eloise currently helps collect data from CNMI residents for Saipan Coastal Sites Residential Surveys regarding CNMI beaches. She has also worked for DCRM as a DEQ Environmental Surveillance Laboratory Intern, where she learned how to collect and analyze water samples to determine if water is safe for drinking and swimming. Eloise is excited to contribute to educating CNMI youth about ocean enrichment and resource preservation by acting as an Ocean Lovers Team Leader for Project HOPE. Eloise joined Project Hope because she believes that the CNMI Community can rebuild its islands’ ecosystem, and it starts by teaching the youth and expanding their awareness of ocean conservation.
