First Blog Post!
Hi! My name is Anita Sanchez. I’ve lived in San Diego all my life, and I can’t imagine living anywhere else. I’ve always been an active person growing up, and I love being outdoors. I enjoy being somewhat of a tourist in my own city; always trying to find new hiking trails, new little cafes, new beaches and things of that nature. I think the environment that I have grown up in has allowed me to develop a greater appreciation for it. My surroundings are important to me and I would like to take part in helping to conserve my environment. Currently, I am studying to become an environmental engineer as my career in the future. Along with my interest in environmental conservation, I have always had a strong passion for science and math. Ever since I can remember, I’ve always been the girl to go above and beyond in all that I do and to strive for success. Therefore, I am super excited to begin this shorebirds internship because it will give me a chance to put my skills into good use and to further explore my interests. I hope that by getting to interact with all the other interns and researchers, I will be able to have a positive learning experience. To the left, is a picture of me at Seaport Village, one of my favorite spots to go visit.
