CENTER At the center of my ecological model is me. I am a 41-year-old Mexican/Colombian female that has many roles. I am a wife, mother of two, rescue dog mom of three, daughter, aunt, college student, teacher assistant, scrapbooker, and friend. At the current moment I am not in good health because of a sinus infection. Overall though I do consider myself an active, healthy person who enjoys doing 5k charity walks and Mud Runs. I am a fun size 5’2’’ brunette with tan skin and unhappy with my current weight. My future goals are to graduate from CSUN with a degree in Child and Adolescent Development. I am not sure what my destiny will be after graduation. My husband and I love to travel so visiting new destinations is important for us. I consider myself a hard worker, determined to succeed, loyal, and love to have fun. These are all traits of my LEO sign. I volunteer for two organizations that are very important to me. The Green Bag Project assembles bags for homeless and Operation Gratitude creates care packages for our military.
In my microsystem is my core family which is my husband and children. They are my biggest supporters and inspiration. I also include my extended family which is close and far away because I like to stay in touch with everyone. CSUN is an important part of my microsystem because it is currently my main focus as a student and employee. I belong to the CADA (Child and Adolescent Development Association) here on campus. This club has really

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 also have perceptions about agriculture, food, and natural resource sciences that will lead me to higher positions in the future. If one was to look into the past ten years of my life they would see that I got my start with the 4-H Club under Mrs. Pea Woods who sparked student’s interest during our early years. From there I was able to become more knowledgeable in this field through various science related programs and clubs like MANRRS Organization Member (Minorities in Agriculture, Natural Resources and Related Sciences), Saturday Science Scholars, UAMS Mash Program, Science Fairs, Ag Discovery, ARC STEM Summer Programs and many other scientific
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.
I am involved in two clubs at Hopkins High School. I am proud to say that I'm part of the We Serve HHS and HHS Responds clubs. We Serve HHS focuses on serving the community through volunteer. We organized the food drive that recently occurred in October to donate to ICA. Currently, we are looking into collaborating with Mr. Allan Law to provide food for homeless people in the Minneapolis area. HHS Responds is a representation of the diversity in our school. It encourages and promotes diversity in Hopkins. That club brought the gender neutral bathrooms into our school and we are currently working on celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month. We have discussions regarding politics, race, religion, gender, and many other current topics that affect students
Career goals and education at this point is getting my generals done and transferring to a university. My career goals are pretty open, with thoughts toward two complete different fields: business management or early childhood development. A lot of challenges have come from my education. Yes, I went to school my whole life but I changed school around seven different times before settling in one location. My family often moved around a lot because my parents work required us to be close to the surrounding area. Education with my family really pushed me to graduate because not a single member of my family has graduated from high school. For me education
Personal Statement I’ve always kept an eye on social tensions around the world and although at a younger age I didn’t always fully understand the social injustices that were going and as I began to grow in age, my knowledge and understanding of what was going on around me not only in my community but also around the world also grew. I am a hard-working person,I'm friendly, kind, and can cope with social issues whatever the situation. I'm a team player but can also work independently and lead a team. I am able to bring a range of ideas when it come to teamwork or team leadership. I am able to display a calm, friendly attitude whatever the situation.
In the next five years i will be a outgoing and caring person willing to stand up for someone. As a tiger I am fearless of what the future brings and are willing to fight for what's right. I want to be calm, social and vibrant in color like the rain forests. I want to be fearless because I don't want to be afraid to stand up for myself or other people. I want to be trustworthy because i want to be more honest to my friends and family. I want to be outgoing because i want to be able to be myself and make new friends without hesitation.I want to act calm and just take it step by step and go slow so i don't overwhelm myself.
I hope that I will be able to work with large marine mammals, like sea turtles, dolphins and manatees. I hope that through Stetson, I will be able to work with professionals and do hands on work. Through the Bonner program, I aspire to raise awareness about the human effects on the environment and also would like to teach children about the environment they live in.
My goals in life are to get a first enlist in the Navy, hope to get a job as a diver in the special operations program. After my first enlistment is up, I want to be a diver at an aquarium where I can feed the animals; Meanwhile, I would like to attend Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science at The University of Miami and earn a doctorate degree in Marine Biology to become a Marine Biologist. I've always been fascinated with animals, especially aquatic life. Although, I wasn't dead-set on becoming one at first, over spring break I made my final decision. We went to an aquarium and I just loved every bit of it; the animal’s interactions, the knowledge behind all of it, and the joy I saw between the employees and the animals. I’m very interested in not just the study of organisms in the ocean or other marine bodies of water, but also marine conservation and ecology. Thinking about the studies of protecting and preserving of the ecosystems in oceans and seas and interactions among organisms and their environment just gets my full attention. I could sit for hours and hours and listen to anybody talk about these subjects and they would have my full attention, one-hundred percent. This subject has never, and never will lose my interest.
One last thing that contributes to the sum of me is my goals. One quote that I memorize by reading Meg Jay’s book The Defining Decade: Why Your Twenties Matter--And How to Make the Most of Them Now was “You need to invest in yourself to feel better… Even having simpler goals makes one happier”. Becoming a licensed architect is my career goal and that what bring me to the United States. Other than that, I have as objective to develop affordable apartment complexes among my country and also in other African countries. Those where my dreams that became my goals and they define me because they influence most of my choices and keep me motivated.
My life time goals are oriented towards self-improvement, making a positive impact in people’s lives. This field is always evolving and I am excited to grow in my knowledge as well. I want to obtain my Master’s degree after getting a feel of the field. I want to teach and possibly work in research. Another main goal is to obtain a lab manager position over time. Overall, these goals would help me expand my knowledge and help my self-improvement. I have always wanted to acquire a profession where I would have a positive
Upon being asked about my future, I have always been met with anxiety and fear of such unknown. Growing up, as more and more of my peers developed their specific interests and even revealed desired career choices, I only felt lost in terms of what I wished to purse. I found that I was easily overwhelmed if I allowed myself to read too deeply into the dreaded “what am I going to do with my life” question. I have come to realize that it is much less anxiety provoking, however, if I view this matter on a smaller scale. After all, I do have aspirations and goals that I strive to achieve on a short-term basis.
I like to look at myself as a genuine, thoughtful young lady. I’m a hard worker; I believe nothing is ever handed to you so you have to go get it. I worked hard to get to this point of my life and working even harder to get to the successful and graduate part of my life. I care more for some others than I do myself but I have a huge nonchalant attitude. I don’t really show anger or sadness much I always smile because I’m optimistic about life. I look at life as if something bad comes along, no need to dwell on it you can’t take it back so just move-on and improve what you did wrong if it’s possible.
Ralph Waldo Emerson once said “To be yourself in a world that is trying to make you something else is a great accomplishment”. Who am I? is question that many often struggle to answer, but for me it allows me to differentiate from my constituents and express who I really am. What makes me such a unique individual is my ability to identify with 5 strong strengths. I love the fact that I am futuristic and I have the ability to relate, I am responsible, I am a developer and last but not least I am disciplined. Each one these themes shape and generate my personality. Born on February 22nd 2000 I am the only daughter to Rob and Theresa Jones. When I’m not roaming the illustrious campus of State University, I enjoy shopping I personally feel
A photograph of Earth reveals a great deal, but it does not convey the complexity of our environment. Our environment (a term that comes from the French environner, “to surround”) is more than water, land, and air; it is the sum total of our surroundings. It includes all of the biotic factors, or living things, with which we interact. It also includes the abiotic factors, or nonliving things, with which we interact. Our environment includes the continents, oceans, clouds, and ice caps you can see in the photo of Earth from space, as well as the animals, plants, forests, and farms that comprise the landscapes around us. In a more inclusive sense, it also encompasses our built
