If I could earn a living in the environmental health field, it would be a dream come true. I have always had an interest in nature because of my father. Ever since I was young he would take us on hikes through the woods or canoeing on a lake by my old house. I learned to identify different plants and bird songs through my experiences. It wasn’t until I grew older and learned about the dangers of an unhealthy environment and the struggles people around the world face when their environment cannot provide basic necessities. I want to help make the world a safer place for people to live, while also protecting the environment. I intend to help develop sustainable ways to help people survive by purifying contaminated water and reversing desertification to make land farmable. In order to do this I plan to achieve a Master’s degree in Environmental Health and intern so that I may gain the experience necessary to get a government job. I am excited to be an Environmental Health major at the University of Georgia because it combines two aspects of life that are important to me, nature and compassion. The idea that I can help people take full advantage of their surroundings and resources so that they may live better lives is so fulfilling to me.
