At 16, Flaam is the eldest of two daughters. She is bi-lingual in French and English and lives in Greenwich Connecticut. She loves to rock climb. Her main school interest is in biology. She is a soprano and sings in choir. She has extensive travel experience and has been to Ethiopia, Vietnam, Cuba, Bolivia among others. She developed a keen interest in climate change, and is interested in learning more after her trip to Greenland last year.

In her Words: "I was born and live in Greenwich, Connecticut. It's a great because we live by the ocean and at the same time only one hour away from New York City, where I go as often as I can. My sister Ainhoa is 14 and will take part in this expedition with me.

I just turned 17 and next year will be a senior in high school at the French-American School of New York. Although I'm not sure which college I would like to apply to, I would love to study biology, environmental sciences and psychology. I'm bilingual in French and English and am learning Spanish. I hope to study abroad in either Spain or Argentina to become fluent!

I started rock climbing 3 years ago. I climb indoors with other teenagers but have been climbing outdoors as well (at the Gunks north of New York). I climb around 5.12s if that means anything to you. When I was 14, I passed my PADI diving license and since then I dive whenever given the chance (though I do not plan on diving in the artic ;)) A couple summers ago, I toured England and Scotland with my choir. Our family loves to travel and we have been to Ethiopia, Vietnam, Cuba, Bolivia to name a few. Not only has traveling offered amazing experiences but it has also helped develop my passion for photography.

I was first introduced to climate change by my father on our trip to Greenland in June 2007. I am looking forward to this trip to develop my knowledge about the changing conditions of our earth. We are planning to study the cracks in the northernmost ice-shelf of the Canadian Arctic which should be really exciting."
