My biggest accomplishment this year has been successfully paying for school, without having to take out a loan. Living debt free has taken hard work, but is 100 percent worth it.

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.
