Q & A
- Georgetown, Ontario
- What conservation issue is closest to your heart?
- For me conservation issues related to and/or caused by human change are particularly important. Humans are altering the world at an unprecedented rate and in doing so are destroying habitats, exploiting recourses, polluting areas and much more.
- What are you hoping to learn from CCC?
- I think I’m ready to learn some new skills, perspectives and knowledge that I can take with me to future stages and in life. I also expect to meet some amazing people along the way and have an all-around great adventure doing things I love.
- Who/what inspired you to care about conservation?
- The outdoor experiences and knowledge I gained through Army Cadets first sparked my obsession for the outdoors. These were pivotal for me and really set the foundation for why I chose to pursue conservation and environmental science in school.
- If you could sit down with anyone in the world and have tea or coffee, who would it be? And why?
- In the field of conservation / environmental science, I would definitely want to have coffee with the late Rachel Carson. This individual played a significant role in uncovering human impacts on the environment and addressing it publically regardless of the backlash. Outside the realm of conservation, I would say the late John Denver, because he has some real good music and we have the same glasses so we would be instant friends for sure.
