This week, we meet Noor Inayat Khan, one of the bravest women to ever live. She was a British secret agent during World War 2, working as a radio operator in occupied Paris. In fact, working as the ONLY radio operator in occupied Paris. The average lifespan for that job was 6 weeks, and she lasted almost 5 months. She escaped the Gestapo numerous times, and went out fighting. All this, even though everything about her work went against her basic pacifist nature. Read on for more about this phenomenal human being.

5 years ago, I was getting ready for my gap semester, convinced I was going to be a marine archeologist. Since then, my dream has changed, but the one thing that’s remained constant is my love of the ocean, something I discovered nearly 7 1/2 years ago at @projectoceanology. Now, as I head out on the next adventure, I’m taking the memories and lifelong friends I’ve made working at Project O over the years. I am so grateful for everything I’ve learned and all the memories I’ve made. It has truly been one heck of a ride. #gratitude #newadventures #projectoceanology
