Why Biology and Physical Science
“Growing up in the Pacific Northwest, I spent a lot of time outdoors hiking and camping. During my outdoor explorations, my dad was always asking me questions about our surroundings, such as ‘Why do you think that tree is bent over that way?’, ‘Where do you think that boulder came from?, and ‘Where do you think the fish hide in this river?’ As a result, I grew up with a curious mind for how the natural world worked. Teaching science became a way for me to inspire curiosity in others while letting me continue to explore my interests.”
