I am a biology and marine science major at the University of Alabama, from Houston, Texas. I am currently planning on pursuing a master’s degree in fisheries management. In high school, I was involved in the National Honor Society and as an Eagle Scout. These opportunities allowed me to practice my technical writing and project management, both as a leader and as a worker. In college, I have perfected these skills in my coursework and position as lab technician, including in data collecting cruises in and around Mobile Bay, and in the management of the University’s fish collections database.
