She has recently been featured on GoGirl! Magazine as an inspiring female who works on the rig in the middle of the vast waters and who has no fear about working physically hard and being treated equally with men.
Talking about forestry, my Landscape Ecology lecturer told us about patches, matrixes, edges, borders, and boundaries this afternoon. All of them is related to the characteristics of forest, the basics of the edge effect, and the land conservation management. I can say that I was obviously excited about having the lecture, though it didn’t tell me about marine conservation, which is particularly my current main interest, at all. Yet that’s how Biology student learn. As one who study Biology in general, we almost have never study about something in particular. Every subject is actually related to one another that we have to figure the lesson we can take ourselves. It is indeed confusing, yet somewhat daring and addictive. Once we know about something about which lecturer only give clues, we can’t stop ourselves from getting to the information about it, which we mostly do by browsing the internet.
