Where do you attend school?
I attend Stephen T. Mather Building Arts & Craftsmanship High School in Manhattan, NY and I am currently a senior.

What are your hobbies/interest?
Some of my hobbies consist of working around my school and being apart of school clubs. I also like to hang out with friends, go ice-skating, out to eat and spend quality time with family.

How long have you been involved in Branching Out?
Iโ€™ve been apart of Branching Out for two seasons, I was a field team member in the summer of 2017 and then I returned to be a School Year Ambassador. The experience was amazing and I love being apart of the program.

Why did you choose to participate in Branching Out?
I chose to participate in Branching Out again because I learned a lot about landscape preservation, carpentry and masonry. Throughout my time in the program I gained hands on experience in the field and got to build a lot of teamwork. Also, I had a lot of fun visiting and working on different National Parks.

What are your career and educational goals?
In the future, I would like graduate from college and either have a career in Architectural Design or Psychology. I like the idea of being able to design and build my own business from ground up and also being able to study peopleโ€™s behaviors seems interesting.

What type of opportunities do you hope Branching Out will provide you with?
I hope Branching Out will provide me with a lot of skills and techniques that can help me in the future. I would like to gain additional hands on skills in the field and also be able to explore new places.
