Would you like to talk briefly about your job?
Environmental Study generally is broad, but it’s an essential to humanity. It allows human-nature interrelationships to be understudied. And in this present period, there is greater need for in-depth investigation in order to conserve and protect human-nature cycle. Conclusively, what we give to the Earth, we receive from Mother Earth the Geometric proportion, hence Environmental studies give room for sustainable development while protecting, preventing and conserving our Planet.
Thank you so much for your time. Lastly, can you give any advice to girls interested in STEM?
Stay determined and focused! Do not allow your gender undermine your dream.
