In a month, I am graduating from the College of William and Mary where I have double majored in Latin American Studies and Environmental Policy. While I have lived in Virginia my whole life, my major, interests, and family have taken me to Scandinavia, Central and South American and the Caribbean. Now I am excited to be more involved in what is going on here in the United States. In high school, I worked on a two trail building team on the PCT and during my college summers, I have worked on a sustainable managed farm in Virginia, both of which have given me a taste for hard, outdoor labor. I guess all this began when I was little and it was expected that I spend a significant part of my day outside in our backyard and every summer my family went camping. Although, I am not sure where the future will lead me, I am very interested in going into the U.S Park or Forest Service and I see working in the Adirondacks this season as a way to explore this field and train myself for it. Outside of the environmental and international experiences, I enjoy working with ceramics, exploring ethnic food stores and sewing.
