Hey everyone! My name is Evelynn Dominguez and I am currently a junior at Davis Senior High School. I am involved in the symphonic band and symphony orchestra, which takes up a lot of my time, so music is a big part of my life. I am interested in this project because it is a great opportunity to get some experience in this field since I am interested in studying sciences. I am super grateful to be able to work with the UCD mentors and I look forward to learning all about data collection and research. It was my first time going to the ditch and it was not what I was expecting, it did take me a while to find a blue flag (even though there were a ton of bright blue flags right where I was standing, I’m just oblivious sometimes) which was sort of annoying, but luckily my mom was there to guide me haha.
