About Me:[edit | edit source]
Name: Jimmy Vasquez
- The outdoor environment has always, in one form or another, been beautiful to me. The delicate balance that maintains life is a clear sign that harmful practices will inevitably yield results of direct proportion. Unnecessarily assigning blame has the potential to slow progress. As an aspiring steward of the world's population, I believe careful planning and the imptemention of sustainable solutions, both physical and social, are key to securing a better future. It is the hope for a better future, coupled with my abilities and interests, that continually attract me to the field of environmental engineering.
