Why did you come to Yanayacu?   I came to learn more about the insects and ecosystems in tropical areas, I’ve never been to South America before.

What’s the most important thing you learned?  I’m amazed at the interactions between insects and plants, the complexity of interactions between plants and animals.

How has the experience changed you?  Seeing and being in this area is totally different than reading about it in a book, it’s been wonderful!

What are your plans for the future?  I plan to keep teaching at LCCC, and earn my doctorate in Adult Education,

What advice would you give to young science students?  Keep the curiosity and creativity that you’re born with alive. Don’t let school or adults ‘break’ you. Have fun learning!
