About (Summary)

I have officially declared my major to be Sustainable Development with a Concentration in Agroecology. I am also striving to achieve a certification in Geographic Information Systems. My career goal is to work for the Natural Resource Conservation Service as an Environmental Educator or Soil Technician. I am finishing up my first semester here at Appalachian State University on the Dean’s and Chancellor’s List. I have enjoyed meeting new people, living in a different environment, trying new things, and becoming very involved on campus. During my time here at Appalachian State University, I have attended a national leadership conference, which informed me on outdoor educational opportunities and internship/job opportunities in my field (which I hope to take advantage of Spring 2017). I am a member of two campus ministries, “Collegians for Christ” and “Students on a Mission,” both of which I have become actively involved in and even traveled to Kentucky to see the Creation Museum back in October. I have taken a Self-Defense course through the University Police Department to protect myself and feel more confident if a dangerous situation ever comes my way. I joined Shag Club as a fun way to immerse myself in a new culture and make new friends. I am really enjoying my time here at Appalachian State University and will strive to always be the best I can be academically while helping and encouraging others along the way.
