Saki Adachi

“Saki is a true “Initiator & Change maker”, constantly originating new projects and developing ideas from her own unique perspective to create new value. Born in 1988 in Tokyo, Japan, Saki developed a deep love for animals early in life that led her to a particular interest in whales, dolphins and marine life. This fascination guided her decision to pursue her higher education at the Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology, Department of Ocean Sciences. There, Saki was introduced to the devastating impacts of marine pollution, which further motivated her to pursue studies in biochemistry. After receiving her Masters degree, Saki spent three years as a researcher before deciding to dive into the field of communication, where she could not only continue to study technology but she could find ways to apply her knowledge to “create mechanisms for social change.””
