Hi, I'm Shauna and I am an educator from London.
I have a background in Zoology, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and I love to explore new environments around the world. I enjoy working for Barge because I get to share my knowledge with young learners, and help them to appreciate nature and the environment around them.


Nipaphon Leacher - Environmental Educator

Hello, I am Miza. I come from Chiang Rai, in the northern part of Thailand. I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in the English Program. I was born in the countryside and grew up in a mountainous city, which is a tourist attraction village. This upbringing has made me passionate about traveling and living with nature. I also completed an internship with Traidhos Camp in 2020, which inspired me to learn more about environmental sustainability. After graduating from university, I started working at an international school in my hometown. I love joining outdoor activities and challenging myself. That's why I decided to further my learning and knowledge development.

Now, I am a part of the Traidhos Barge team, and it has been a year since I started working here to learn and share my knowledge about the natural environment. I am excited to meet you and hope that we can learn and enjoy the experience together!
