Three Thoughts:

My Capstone Project would be… ecological photography.

If I could have dinner with anyone (dead or alive), I would choose… 1. Henry Allen— my maternal grandfather. He passed away before I was born, and I have always heard stories about him. I would have loved the chance to get to know him.; 2. Jane Goodall—She is a pioneer in understanding animal behavior and our connection to them as humans. Jane is also an incredible role model for adults and children.; 3. Wangari Maathai—She was an environmentalist and a women’s rights activist. Wangari was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for her efforts to prevent conflict through resource preservation.

My favorite children’s books are… The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein, Pink and Say by Patricia Polacco, and Faithful Elephants by Yukio Tsuchiya.
