MEET SPAIN

Sarah Loinaz is an ocean advocate currently teaching Spaniard children about recycling methods to address marine pollution in the coasts of Spain and the different Spanish islands in the Mediterranean and western Africa.


Sarah is the founder of the campaign Recycle, Sea, Action! (a name inspired by the phrases “Ready, Set, Action!” and “Lights, Camera, Action!”). Through her campaign, Sarah works as the founder of this initiative by educating children about recycling and marine pollution awareness, as well as a volunteer to support the affected community of the currently active Cumbre Vieja volcano in the island of La Palma, Spain.


Her ultimate goal working as a volunteer in the volcano affected areas of La Palma is to encourage and invite children and young people to join her efforts by becoming volunteers cleaning the affected areas of La Palma, recycling different materials, and becoming aware of both negative and positive effects of the volcano emissions to our natural ecosystem, as well as the negative and positive effects of human intervention (marine pollution vs. climate advocacy) to our marine ecosystem. Sarah is studying Business Management at the University of the Basque Country and the online University of UDIMA in Madrid.


In addition to Sarah’s ongoing volunteerism in La Palma, her campaign #RecycleSeaAction! also encompasses working as the ambassador of Asociación Aguja Solidaria (Solidarity Needle Association) supporting the donation of recyclable clothes, tools, and masks for children in Spain and other parts of the world. Through this association, Sarah has been part of a collective effort to donate 120,000 materials including clothes, masks, and gloves to help combat the health crisis due to the COVID-19 pandemic in Spain, and 220 uniforms to a school in Kenya. Furthermore, Sarah has grown up in a family with different customs and cultures, the Arab and the Spanish.


Her mother is from Agadir, Morocco, and her father is from San Sebastián, Spain. Her multicultural background has given her the opportunity to be fully fluent in different languages: Spanish, Arab, English, and Basque (Euskera) --one of the oldest living languages in Europe. Her multicultural identity has allowed her to learn from diverse communities with different languages, traditions, and religions, and has given her the opportunity to listen, learn, and respect diverse minds and hearts.


Today, as Miss Universe Spain, Sarah works everyday to support diverse communities affected by marine pollution in Spain and the volcanic eruption of the Cumbre Vieja volcano in the island of La Palma.
