Maritime Education

Alexandra Hagerty Woman's Marathon Foundation

Before choosing the merchant marine career, it is important to read and watch videos and talk to those who are already working as merchant mariners. It is favourable for young female mariners who want to build community at home and in the maritime field to know about the field in depth.

Our founder Alexandra Hagerty first learned about the merchant marine when she was working as an intern for Tall Ships America at the age of 19 in Newport, Rhode Island.

She met a woman who was also an intern there that told her about how she was attending Massachusetts Maritime Academy and the career options she would later have in life. She is now a Captain.
