The pursuit of knowledge helped me love books and which brought me to Creighton University. Since my childhood I was eager to learn as much as possible, specifically the environment. I was fascinated about wildlife and how beautiful it looked. Being a native from Nairobi, Kenya; I was able to go to the safaris and learn about the different animals. These are the memories which I vividly remember and keep close to me. When I went back many years later, I was disappointed to see how my city has changed. This was disheartening because the city didn’t change for the best. This caused me to go for a minor in Sustainable Energy. The Energy department at Creighton is being cut back on and is limiting our class options to learn. Northeastern University
Beginning next year, I plan on double majoring in Environmental Science and Biology, and I want a career in Conservation and/or Biodiversity. YCC is an ideal opportunity because it enables me to involve myself in activities oriented towards my career. Because I am dually enrolled in my high school and Western Kentucky University, I have benefitted from many opportunities to discover my passions and pursue Biology. I am currently involved in Undergraduate Biology Research and have completed several biology courses ranging from Anatomy and Physiology to Evolutionary Biology and Biodiversity in Costa Rica. Because of my favorable academic circumstances, I have had many opportunities in the field of biology, but I have obtained fewer experiences in Environmental issues. However, I am still passionate about the environment, and especially lifestyle changes that would reduce detriments to the Earth.
Career Fair CASA CASA is a nonprofit that is based off of volunteer advocates who stand up for the well-being of abused and neglected children in the foster care system. The CASA volunteers are there to ensure that every foster child’s needs remain a priority in an overburdened child welfare system
I have always cared about the environment, even from a young age. I am hoping that this course can further explain to me how the environment works, what problems the environment is facing, and what I can do to help.
450 - 600 Words During my time at West, I have participated in Ecology Club, National Honor Society, and the INSPIRE engineering courses. Most recently, I have been appointed as a Project Manager for the Kenya Water Solutions Team, as well as an Administrator for the Lemelson-MIT InvenTeam - under the INSPIRE program. I am currently a leader in initiating an Activism Club for our school. Following graduation, I intend on pursuing Civil Engineering and Sustainable Design. I have yet to decide on a college. Go STEM!
I have attended the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh for the last two years. I will be entering my junior year pursuing a Bachelor Degree of Science with a major in Environmental Studies. My career interests entail green energy and natural resource management. I was a young child when I started attending a summer camp program that emphasized nature and environmental conservation—ever since I have made outdoor activities into hobbies and continued interest in environmental sustainability. The University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh focuses on sustainability through green building, alternative and solar energy, and curbing pollution.
I completed my bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science & Policy Minor in Management in May 2016. During my four years at Clark, I’ve gained in depth knowledge of racial, environmental, and social justice issues in and outside of the classroom.
I am particularly interested in attending Rutgers because it has a rich history of educating students in the field of Environmental Science. In addition, the Center for Environmental Prediction is an organization that shares my concern and commitment to the environment. I am hoping to become involved with the CEP and conduct research and lobbying in conjunction with them. I am also attracted to Rutgers because it has the best of both worlds from a campus standpoint. I can enjoy the more rural Cook/Douglass campuses and truly experience nature at places like the Bamboo garden and the log cabin hiking trails. Yet, just a bus ride away is the hustle and bustle of George Street and the College Avenue campus. I believe that by attending Rutgers, I can learn in a professional, experienced environment with access to knowledgeable faculty and leading edge technology and research. More importantly, I believe that the Rutgers Curriculum can allow me to develop the skillset I need to actually make a difference. Classes on solar energy and environmental tax policy serve as the environmentalist’s weapons in the fight for our planet. I want to use Rutgers as a resource to help not only myself, but the entire planet. When I think about the term “world-changing”, I think free clean energy for a nation, zero dependence on fossil fuels, and stopping the extinction of several keystone species. The world is in a delicate balance now more than ever. With the geopolitical scale shifting the way it is, environmentalists will face the greatest challenge yet to protect and preserve. Now it is my time to step up and do my part, all I need are those willing to teach me
Alaska has many natural resources, these resources include oil, gas, mining, and fishing. By becoming more technical and learning engineering and geology and computer science is how I can also contribute to Alaska the largest state in the Union. Alaska should have the ability to take advantage of its resources more than we are now. Besides the resources already mentioned above, we also have the most lakes and largest shoreline than any other state. Because of the open arctic passages, we now have the ability to start utilizing our natural resources in this
Alaska contains a large portion of the country's coal stores, and its biggest silver and zinc mines. Sparkling gold in Alaska's streams mountains still bait mineworkers to work private cases. Sections of land of soil in Alaska are appropriate for cultivating, with millions sections of land presently underway. The long light hours of summer deliver vegetables of phenomenal size.
It is easy to lose track of time when one does not have a plan. My five-year plan will aid in me reaching my goals with maximum time utilization. I have high expectation for myself, as I am my greatest critic. Within five year I plan to focus on education,
A lot of Alaska's jobs involve natural resource extraction, shipping and transport. More of it comes from the military bases which are located in the state. Tourism is also big in Alaska, with the increase in local lodging contributing to the state's economy. Although Alaska has some roads, they are not as available as they are in other states. Travel throughout Alaska is also by train, water and air. Of course, one could always travel by
Tell us about yourself I am a rising junior at the Morris County School of Technology, specializing in the Academy for Child Related Careers. I have a deep interest in science, including chemistry, biology/ecology, and psychology. I also have a passion for art and teaching.
Through working with clubs within my school and community I have volunteered at a number of river and road cleanups. The pollution in my town is overwhelming when you are the one cleaning up the environment and it makes one stop and think about why their community would not take better care of the earth. As an ambassador for the National Society of High School Scholars I would be able to inspire my generation to take better care of the earth by recycling and not littering. By educating my generation I believe we could start a serious movement which would tackle the problem of pollution not only in my community but in all communities in America and
In June of 2016, I studied abroad in Ecuador, traveling through the coastal lowlands over the highlands, and into the Amazon rainforest. One of my first field trips was exploring the city of Guayaquil. We drove out north from the city center and past the gated communities. We stopped at
