I am interested in meteorology because it is a unique way of saving people’s lives. When we think of the idea of saving lives, careers such as a nurse, policeman, or firefighter are common jobs. Therefore, I perceive meteorology as a way of informing citizens about upcoming weather so that they can properly prepare for it and help save lives.  I devote countless hours outside of class and during the wee hours of the night to accomplish the material given during class. By working in other environments such as water treatment plants, retail clothing stores, music production, multi-media, and with international students, it has allowed me to be able to work alone as well as with other diverse teammates. With this, I believe I am becoming a well-rounded meteorologist.
