There are seven billion people in the world, meaning there are seven billion stories to be told. But, let me introduce myself. My name is Michelle and I was born in Phoenix, Arizona. During my high school experience I realized that there is more than one way to give back to the community than just working in the health care industry. By becoming aware of our surroundings and taking action to protect our mother earth I will be contributing to longer lives of both human beings as well as the vegetation. I am excited to be a member of the Field School Program this fall of 2013. This program will allow me to further my education outside of a classroom, with hands-on experience. I look forward to meeting new challenges physically as well as mentally.
