I am interested in pursuing a degree in the field of Fisheries and Wildlife. I love to explore nature. I enjoy being an outdoor type of person. My ambition is to become a Fish and Game Warden. The degree I chose to pursue is what I dream of, to protecting wildlife in our world along with the environment in which they live. I am very passionate about this. I am one of the most passionate people you could ever meet. I had the opportunity to live off grid for a week. Although this was a short time, I truly enjoyed the experience. I have surrounded my live with learning and protecting our environment. Nature and the environment has so much to offer. There is always something new to learn about. As a woman pursuing a male dominate field, I feel that I can succeed and prove that I belong beside the men and help in the difficult challenges they face to protect the environment we live in. I plan and will put my heart and soul into the fish and wild life field that I have chosen to pursue. My passion for animals and protecting nature drives me to become a very devoted person. Becoming a Fish and Game Warden is my dream. With the education from Paul Smith College, I will succeed in my goals and dreams.
