About Me

Hello! My name is Sativa (suh-tee-vah) Blackburn! Just a little bit about me,

I’m 17 going on 18, a senior in high school, I like reading, writing short stories, and being with friends and family. I dabble a bit in art. I’m not afraid to get down in the dirt to get the job done. I absolutely love animals, more than the average person. In fact, animals are and always will be my life. I am planning on majoring in Zoology. Achieving my bachelor’s degree and becoming a zookeeper. I volunteer every Saturday at The Animal Foundation, and hope one day to open my own rescue with my best friend. One of my biggest dreams is to travel to Africa, doing work in the field, and maybe even filming while I do field work. I hope to make great headway in conservation, and help with America’s pet overpopulation (with my own shelter). Well, that’s pretty much all about me! Pip Pip, Cheerio, and all that what not!

Graduating with Advanced Diploma

College of Southern Nevada HS

College of Southern Nevada High School has been a great experience for me. Taking both college classes while I finish high school has been a blast. I have met so many great people and have learned alot about myself. I am so glad i decided to spend my Junior and Senior Year here!!

Aug 2005 - Jun 2010

Odyssey Charter Schools

Although this was strictly online schooling for mysixth grade through tenth grade years, I still believed it helped me. Sure I didn't get the "social experience" others achieve in high school. I learned alot about myself. I found I am productive and capable of working on my own. I can learn by my own devices, and when I don't understand something I can figure it out on my own.

Aug 1999 - Jun 2005

ICA or International Christian Academy

From kindergarten through fifth grade I attended ICA. Although most wouldn't mention elementary school, ICA gave me the standards that I have held myself up to all these years, and has allowed me to travel far in the academic field. They held high standards, and I carried those throughout my life. It is the reason why I did online school instead of public school, and why I was able to enroll in CSNHS, and now those lessons will carry into my college life.
