Internship: In the summer of 2012, I could not go to the summer but this summer I will apply to a summer internship.
Narrative: I was born in Moca, P.R. and grew up in Isabela, Puerto Rico. My interests and hobbies are engraved in the great outdoors. I came to the University of Mayagüez seeking my passion towards Agronomy. Now in the end of May 2013 I have been two years in the University of Puerto Rico Mayagüez. I chose this degree plan because it highlights two areas of interest to me, sustainable agriculture and strategic development for impoverished communities. In a career I would like to see myself more out doing field work. Ideally, the NRCS would be the agency that my academics and interests coincide ; otherwise, I would also like to work with other agencies.
