Hello all! My name is Vanessa Hansen-Quartey and I am a junior at Engineering Science University Magnet School (ESUMS) and this is my second year in Evolutions and my first year in Bay & Paul Leadership Program.
Already knowing I had a knack for science, I decided to expand on my involvement in extracurriculars that were science oriented, and low and behold I decided to apply for Evo! I love chemistry, have an interest in physics, a growing love for business and entrepreneurship, but environmental science is just something that is of growing concern in our world and something that cannot be ignored; this is one of the many reasons why I've taken interest in this field! "Environmental Science" is far broader than a small society full of clean water enthusiasts and tree huggers, but a collection of people from various backgrounds such as geology, chemistry and biology, and even politics that come together to try to solve the problems that are wrong with our earth -- Our physical earth. For this reason, and the urge to make a difference, I am interested and am grateful for being able to work with all of you! (Soon).
