24 May Introducing myself: Alisa Hernandez
¡Hola a todos! My name is Alisa Hernandez! I am a first-generation undergraduate, transfer biological science student from California State University, Fullerton (CSUF). This summer, I will be working as the Natural Resources & Wildlife Biology intern at Cabrillo National Monument in San Diego, California.
I will be working with historic herpetofauna data to understand their population dynamics within the national monument.
I am excited to get my first hands-on experience in wildlife biology and working out in the field. I am thrilled about my upcoming internship experience because I will allow me to learn more about working in the wildlife biology field and it will allow me to immerse myself as a professional in wildlife biology research. I am still exploring what career path I want to take after graduation and I know this internship will provide much guidance. I am so excited to explore a variety of possible career paths while participating in the Latino Heritage Internship Program. I am also enthusiastic about further exploring my passion for wildlife, conservation biology, and ecology this summer.
I am eager to start my journey this summer, and I hope you all will join me in my blog posts throughout my internship!
