Why I Wander Through the Woods
As a child, I would always watch nature shows and poke interesting things with sticks. I was curious about nature, animals, plants, and all of their intricacies which made them unique. Fortunately for me, there is actually a career which lets me wander around outside and ask every question I have about the environment. I've come to love academia as it gives me the opportunity to explore and learn while also giving me the opportunity to help others get interested in a field I'm insanely passionate about. Through community service, research, and outreach I've shared my passion with other kids (and adults) who love to walk outside and poke at things. I look forward to spending the rest of my career continuing to do so.
I started out as a science aide at 10 years old then moved on to a science and engineering camp in junior high. In high school I was a leader in BioSITE, a program which let me teach kids from the elementary school I attended. In college I began to learn the techniques used to monitor and manage environments, which led to my graduate career where I've started to apply them. I attended Oklahoma State University (2014-2017) where I completed my M.S. in Integrative Biology. My paper on this research is currently in review. I'm now a PhD candidate at UC Berkeley working on topics in Environmental Science.
