It was in the day of my Advanced Placement Environmental Science class. My teacher, an activist in conserving and protecting the environment, was doing one of his special lectures where he’d present graphic pictures of animals suffering from the damages that our society has inflicted. Such examples include deforestation, global warming, and pollution. And after seeing those animals helpless and in misery from our onslaught, I felt a fire in me. Like my passion had been stirred and I knew what I should strive for. I am now a college freshman at the University of Central Florida, majoring in Biology with a minor in Environmental Studies. With my degree, I plan on becoming a biologist researching ways to preserve and protect nature. I plan to study a great emphasis on zoology alongside conservation biology in order to achieve this goal. After being enlightened on the horrors done frequently to our environment, plus time spent volunteering at humane societies, I am now in love with nature and would commit most of my time helping the environment. Whether through volunteer efforts to clean up a forest ecosystem, or with an internship to study wildlife, my school offers a plethora of programs that I may benefit from. I know that my actions here alongside my education will net me a job that I will love. Hopefully, through my dedication and hard work, I will be able to make nature a beautiful place once again, a sustainable ecosystem with a plethora of bio-diversity.
