Through the eyes of 15 year old Megen we learn about life in Nicaragua and about the Sirenetas de Popoyo (@sirenitassurfclub), which is a beautiful and vital project that empowers and inspires girls through surfing, swimming and education.

Lyfta is an education platform that “invites students to experience different cultures and perspectives. It gives them the opportunity to see and connect with positive human stories from around the world…”
