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.

Today marks the 19th anniversary of the devastating September 11th terrorist attacks on the United States of America. We honor those who lost their lives in the attacks on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, as well as the first responders who gave their lives rescuing survivors, and the passengers of Flight 93 who thwarted the hijacker’s plans.
