Each year I’ve challenged myself to tackle more complex problems and use sophisticated research methods. I am ready to take myself to a competitive next level, for my own excitement and to get my voice heard in the science world. I am very excited about the networking opportunities and confidence I will gain from the program.I’ve wanted to be an environmental scientist in some capacity since elementary school. Embarking on the scientific process has always been the happiest and most rewarding experience of my life. I am most interested in getting to apply my current conservation knowledge, and get to learn about sustainability on a higher level.
