I am a junior in the Geography program with a special interest in environmental geography. I find it very important to understand how humans impact the environment and how the environment impacts us. My advisor and GIS professor, Jane Read introduced me to SCG. As a new transfer to Geography, she suggested SCG as a way to become involved with the field and the department. I am interested in Community Geography because I value community engagement and want to play a role in solving community issues. I value animals in our society and I plan to use my geographic skills to research endangered species.
