What do you like about the UD College of Agriculture and Natural Resources?
What I love about the UD College of Agriculture and Natural Resources is that it is a small college in a medium sized university which allows students to gain close connections with other students and professors. Many classes also require that students enroll in a lab section that provides beneficial experiential learning. Working with professors and gaining hands-on experience also allows students to determine where their interests lie.
What is your most memorable Ag or UD experience?
My most memorable Ag experience at UD was my first time attending Ag Day during the spring of my freshman year. I had an amazing day meeting representatives from all types of local organizations. Not only was it fun because there were many interactive activities, it was also an amazing opportunity for networking and engaging with the public.
What are your career goals?
I hope to one day work as an Education Curator at zoo or be a coordinator at a Wildlife Rehabilitation center that is open to the public and hosts education events.
What is an interesting or unusual fact about you?
An interesting fact about myself is that while volunteering/interning at Tri-State Bird Rescue and Research Center, during my Freshman year at UD, I had the opportunity to hold an American Bald Eagle.
What is your favorite book, movie, or song?Currently, my favorite book is The Host by Stephenie Meyer.
