When not happily buried in my curricular activities, I spend my time with coming up with creative ways to expand my sustainable lifestyle. I compost everything that I can get my hands on - food scraps, paper items, dryer lint, wood chips, yard clippings; there’s something miraculous about taking would-be refuse and turning it into fresh, viable soil! I recycle all of the things that I use (if it isn’t compostable, that is). I make it a habit, almost a form of entertainment, to pick up trash and things that can be recycled when I’m out and about; doing this helps to remind me of the impact that one person can make. I like to think that these actions make this world a better place; that by making small contributions I will be an example to some and an inspiration for others. The subplan in my Environmental Science degree is sustainability. This asks that I be a leader in living a sustainable lifestyle if I am to ask others to do the same.
I practice yoga and meditation (when I have time) and bike to school daily. Physical exertion creates a certain clarity of mind, and as long as I’m spending thousands of dollars on my education I’d like to have a clear mind ready to learn and retain information. As a perk, bicycling to school has a negligible ecological footprint!
I feel strongly about community education; I believe that it enables anyone to do something important in their life, clarifying issues that affect them on both a local and global level. I get to be a part of that process by volunteering for the Watershed Management Group (WMG), an organization that provides water reclamation resources for local Tucsonans. The organization focuses on the installation of rainwater-harvesting kits. I will soon act as the student perspective on the board for the Water Resources Research Center’s “Conserve to Enhance” (or C2E) program, providing a bridge between the WMG and C2E programs. Beyond the personal enrichment that this occupation will provide, I can also chock this up to field experience - both in its environmental science aspects and the community involvement. I’m already applying my didactic training to this program!
I work in the Atmospheric Sciences department at the University with the EPA Superfund Program. My job is to work with hazardous dust from mining sites in Arizona. I perform in-situ and bench-scale research, using various methods to identify the quantity and quality of dust captured. My primary objective is in pertinence to arsenic, lead and sulfates. If my research produces results that the EPA deems unsafe, the active mines will be responsible for altering methodology or close down until the danger is under control. Academically, having a position within the University gives me the unique opportunity to impress upon my peers and mentors the diligence with which I work and the enthusiasm I have for my field; this will yield invaluable networking and professional recommendations for the career following my degree.
