At 22, Petra Totome is finishing up her Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences at the University of Papua New Guinea. Born and raised in Eastern Highlands Province, she has spent recent years in Central Province and East New Britain Province. She hopes to manage her own NGO one day, helping and investing in Papua New Guinean children. Before she gets there, she’d like to gain some work experience the National Agricultural Research Institute or the Department of Environmental Conservation.
Petra’s favourite sport is soccer, and when she’s not at Uni, she enjoys spending time with her friends and family. She is looking forward to sightseeing on her upcoming trip to Australia, and hopes to meet directors of conservation organisations and NGOs that work with children.
