Of all the NYS Envirothon elements, which do you find most challenging and why?

Forestry because there are too many things to identify and there was not enough time to answer the questions.

How does this compare to the county-level competition?

It is harder and there were many things we did not think about. We didn’t get to use some of the tools we used here.

What do you like best about competing on a college campus?

I like the nice setting on the lake.

What are your plans next year?

I will attend Russell Sage as a psychology major.

What is your dream job?

I want to be a psychiatrist.

In your view, what is the most important environmental issue faced by our country, and what can your generation do about it?

The depletion of the ozone layer is an important environmental issue. We have caused this damage ourselves for the sake of convenience.  Planting trees would help combat the issue.

Water: Bottled or Tap? Why?

I prefer tap water because it is free and there is no wasted plastic.
