About me

Learning Style




-Building Things





- High

I believe I have the traits necessary to succeed in this profession. I love being in a natural environment interacting with various living creatures/organisms. Building safe, healthy sanctuaries for these creatures is an important part of this career. I believe in taking care of the world God provided us so our future generations can enjoy it as much as I do.

My Job as a Marine Biologist

Why I like Marine Biology...
