My name is Aroni Johnson. I was born in linden Guyana and i am 22 years old. At the age of 8 my family and myself migrated to Washington, DC. I spent my duration of high school at Calvin Coolidge Senior High. I am currently a college student studing Biology at the university of the district of columbia, which is located in Washington, DC. My mentor, who was the director of the Upward Bound Program, told me about the SCA program. I have always admired nature and conserving our environment. After about the SCA and what they do for the environment i was more then eager to become a member. In the summer of 2009 i became a member of the SCA crew. I worked as a Botany and conservation intern with the National Park Service out of the Urban Ecology headquater in Georgetown. Being involved with the SCA program have made me more appreciative to my environment and have change my views of the world. I am currently serving my second year as a Botany and conservation with the C&O Canal Historical Park. I don't know what my future holds as my carrier develops. But it is my goal to continue giving back to my community and implement conservations for the future.
