I’m Amelyne (most easily remembered M-L-N), and this will be my second year in the desert. I was a corps member last year, and I’m so glad to be back as a Project Leader! Jawbone is an intense and magical place that I feel deserves my full attention at this point in life. I believe in this program, the people involved, and the desert in all its wonder.
Important things about me: I’m Canadian; therefore, I love hockey and maple syrup. However, I’ve spent most of my life in DC soaking up the capital vibes. I love the excitement of cities, but I also love the adventure and peace of wild nature. I am passionate about food, particularly spicy and salty foods that come from places outside North America and Europe. Other interests include games of all sorts, laughing, little big cats, crossword puzzles, puns, and exploring the world. I feel very lucky to be back in the desert, and I can’t wait to find out what Jawbone has in store for us this season!
Hello all, my name is Nico Diaz and I have just graduated this past May from Humboldt State University with a degree is Art History and a minor in Studio Art. It became abundantly clear that my artistic talents did not lie in the drawing sphere and I have instead focused my attentions on photography and especially ceramics. I’ve always had a mind for history and have often been told my brain stores all kinds of relatively useless information. (though I dominate at Trivial Pursuit) It seemed natural to allow myself to be drawn (ha) into art history and combine two things I am passionate about. So naturally, I’ve forged a path towards restoration work in the desert and couldn’t be happier about it. Life is a splendid thing and I appreciate the challenge.
Hello! My name is Josh Jones, and I was born and raised in the small town of Sullivan, Missouri. However the past year I have lived in Columbia, MO. I am a huge St. Louis Blues and Cardinals fan! I love to fish, hike, camp, ride my bike or anything involving being in the great outdoors. I am extremely excited to be involved with The Student Conservation Association. I have always had a passion for nature that stems from being raised in a rural community and from being in The Boy Scouts of America when I was young. I have never been to the desert so I am super pumped to see some new scenery and get my hands dirty doing some good for the earth!
I recently graduated from the University of Michigan and decided to take some time off. Interested in crazy adventures, I decided to work at Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary and learn about shipwrecks. With my love of the environment, the SCA seemed like a grand idea after the sanctuary.
I am fond of exploring various ecosystems and travelling around the United States as well as the world. I enjoy long bike rides, running, swimming, camping and music. If I could learn one instrument it would be the saxophone. The thought of soup, a book, a blanket followed by music and a bonfire warms my soul. I have other ambitions of painting, learning to cook, learning to blow glass and simply traveling to remote areas of the world. Personally I like to live by the saying, “live simply so that others can simply live.” I value my education at the university and I am excited to apply my environmental major. I hope to bring my humor and liveliness to the team in the desert. Jawbone crew. What What.
My name is Karina, I'm 20 years old from Los Angeles. I just spent an amazing year in AmeriCorps working with kids and am very excited to be doing something different. I like naturey things, being barefoot, linguistics, climbing everything, dresses, taking pictures, dirt, iced tea, adventures, and making something neat out of nothing. I've been in college a couple years and eventually plan to head to the University of Hawai'i at Manoa and double major in Cultural Anthropology and Peace and Conflict Resolutions with a minor in Linguistics, then start up my own school. Till then I'm spending my days doin what I love, traveling and helping people.
