My Best Learning Experience
My best learning experience was during my senior in college researching case studies for my final thesis on human and ecological resilience. I learned how Sustainable societies, institutions, and systems can mimic nature by increasing (bio)diversity, curbing waste, and collaborating to adapt to inevitable changes.
