My objective is to attend Rockhurst University in order to develop a career in the biological field with a focus on Zoology. I would love to emerge myself in cultural studies (especially the Spanish culture) as well by traveling and studying abroad to multiple places throughout my college experience. Through my time in college, I hope to have gained a solid basis of Biology/Zoology and cultural knowledge in order to aid me in my career search. My ideal career would include working for a zoo while executing valuable studies and research over the animals inhabited there. At the same time, I would be getting the opportunity to use my cultural knowledge and Spanish by working with visitors and sharing my discoveries with people throughout the world.
