23 May From MD to CA: ¡California, Aquí Voy!
I might be a little late on the blogging posts but más vale tarde que nunca! So, here it goes. My name is Evelyn Maldonado and I am currently studying Environmental Science and Policy at the University of Maryland. I was born in Gaithersburg, Maryland, but after I turned four, my parents decided to move to the beautiful country of Ecuador, their birthplace! Growing up in Ecuador was an amazing experience for me because it helped me find my passion in life. So, after graduating high school, I decided to pack my bags and come back to Maryland to pursue my dream and become an advocate for the environment! I have enjoyed every step of the road, and life is about to get even more adventurous as once again I will be packing my bags. Except this time I will be heading to Kings Canyon National Park where I will be an interpretation intern for Grant Grove! This program will be a great opportunity for me to share my passion for the environment and learn new ways to teach others the importance of protecting our national parks. I am excited for what lies ahead of me at Kings Canyon this summer!
