Meadow Walker Talks About Paul Walker's Philanthrophy

Paul Walker's Daughter Discusses His Charitable Spirit and Love of the Ocean

Paul Walker's 16-year-old daughter, Meadow, is doing her best to preserve the memory of her late father, who tragically passed away in 2013. The teen is hoping to continue her dad's charitable legacy, which includes his love of the ocean and all things marine biology. On Saturday, the Monterey Bay Aquarium presented the 2015 Paul Walker ocean leadership award and youth award to local student Katie Ridgeway and singer Anjali World; Meadow touched on the special moment in an interview, saying, "My dad was in awe of the ocean and wanted to see it protected," adding, "It's exciting to know scholarships and students like Katie will ensure the future of our oceans. It's an honour to be supporting them and the Monterey Bay Aquarium's teen program."

Paul had been involved with the Monterey Bay Aquarium since 2005, and his namesake leadership awards were created last year to highlight young people who support philanthropic causes related to the ocean. Paul himself became an actor to help pay for his studies, as he wanted to become a marine biologist.

Last month, on what would have been Paul's 42nd birthday, Meadow shared a heartbreaking photo of herself with him along with an important announcement; the teen revealed that she would be launching the Paul Walker Foundation, saying, "Reflecting on my father, I found myself reflecting on his passions. His passion for the ocean, his passion for rescuing animals, his passion for helping people and his passion for spontaneous goodwill. I wanted to start this foundation because I want to share that piece of him with the world." See more adorable throwback photos that Meadow has shared, and look back on Paul's most memorable Hollywood moments.
