This week I had the pleasure of talking to Eric. Eric is a transfer student from Gardena. He’s majoring in physical geography and wants to go into a profession that has to do with conservation work. When he’s not studying, he likes to take photos of the outdoors. He loves doing anything in the outdoors, whether its hiking, rock climbing, or anything else. Eric is different than most of the students I have met here. He actually went to work straight after high school at a shipping company at the airport. He did for a couple of years and thought that he was going to do that for the rest of his life. But, unfortunately the shipping company closed down and everyone was laid off. He then began his college career. It was really cool meeting Eric and listening in on his different route in life. He was a good person to end the semester meeting.
