What I consider to be my greatest accomplishment as of 2018 is choosing to leave home for a semester and come here to Alaska (for Semester by the Bay). I am an intern with USFWS working with sea otter strandings and rescues, a field of work I have always wanted to do, and am finally a part of.

Finally going to college after 35 years since high school. It’s a big accomplishment because I always wanted to go to college and never had the chance.
