As a student at HSU I've developed a large interest in ecology and the evolution of organisms past and present. Environmental Engineering is a perfect opportunity to apply design to ecology, and then use the process to help find balance between both our needs and the needs of the environment. I hope to expand my knowledge in both fields and develop valuable skills to help with the worlds next big issues. I enjoy singing in the Madrigal Singer's choir here on campus, and I am currently learning how to play acoustic guitar. I love to visit and explore the many forest as well as beach regions around the HSU area. I am from a town called Woodland, California, and if you have ever been to the central valley of California, you then know that moving to Humboldt County makes for a fantastic change in biodiversity.
