Narrative: I was born and raised in Arecibo Puerto Rico. When I graduated from high school I was admitted to The University of Puerto Rico Mayaguez Campus where I began with a huge interest on agricultural science and the conservation of the natural resources. Since I was little I have been taught to protect of our natural resources. My interest grew even more when working on my science fair (2006) at the Colegio and later on with the Venturing program from BSA. Now days I’m still very interested on environmental issues and therefor I am studying a career related with this cause.
