This is Iz, sending out a friendly reminder for y’all to write up a small bio about yourself to put up on the SCA website! I am thinking a short paragraph would work. Here’s mine as an example:
“My name is Iz Yankura. I graduated from Roger Williams University in 2009, with a Bachelors degree in Environmental Science. But, way before I ever thought of going to college, I was a young girl romping around in the woods of CT; building mud cakes, stick forts, and little stone walls. From a young age I’ve been curious of the natural world around me. This interest in the ﬂora and fauna around me led me to study environmental science and a want to share it with others, specifically younger generations.
I have had three different placements with the SCA. My first was an alternative spring break, in the Grand Canyon in ’09. My second was as a community crew leader (during the summer of ’11), co-leading three different high school conservation crews, teaching them how to build and maintain trails. This is my third SCA position, working as an environmental educator and then conservation team member in and around Manchester New Hampshire. I am super excited to broaden students’ minds with conservation and environmental education! Similarly, I cant wait to get back out into the field and get dirty with the trails!
My future goals include: many more SCA positions, grad school, and becoming an awesome college professor (known for her wacky classes and unforgettable as well as contagious love for the environment!).”
