Intern Alicia

[dcwsb inline="true"]

How would l spend my perfect day? In the wilderness of course! My name is Alicia and I’m junior from San Diego California. I love being part of the environment every second I get. Whether its outdoor sports like alpine skiing and rock-climbing or traveling to new cities in South America or Europe, I am always looking for adventure and connection to nature.

In my spare time I enjoy reading, painting and spending time at the San Diego Zoo. I have a passion for the arts, and I love to try and connect my art to natural elements like different colors and textures. But what I enjoy most is learning about the environment and how we can sustain it. For the past three years, I have been a part of Zoo Corps at the San Diego Zoo, communicating to the public about conservation and endangered species. My participation in Zoo Corps has solidified my interest in studying zoology and I am very excited for InternQuest because in my future, I want to study wildlife conservation and learn about animal behavior. I see InternQuest as a great opportunity for learning about these different topic areas as well as meet new people and gain experience.

I am on the Real World team so my blogs will make the connection between my zoo experiences with InternQuest and the global community.
