Do you plan to continue your education? If so, what programs or school are you looking into and what is the highest degree you plan to earn?
Yes, I plan on continuing my education to get a master's in either biology, environmental science, or geology.
Have you had any other internship or service opportunities before this? If so, how do you believe internships have benefited you so far?
I had the pleasure of working with multiple professors who are active in their fields, and they have passed on to me their knowledge of fauna, flora, and rock composition which I know will greatly assist me in my duties.
