Ki’Amber Thompson, 2016 Scholar
“I feel most grateful for the diverse network of people in the environmental/conservation field that I am now part of.“
“I was able to learn more about my interests and passions within the environmental field. Being a part of DDCSP at U of M has also made me more confident in my capabilities as an environmentalist and conservationist along with improving other skills such as public speaking, organization, and time management.”
“When I began college, I was thoroughly convinced that I was “not a science person” and could not picture myself assuming any level of leadership in environmental science. Four years ago, I would not have imagined that I would ever apply for Ph.D. programs, but now I’m preparing to pursue a Ph.D. in microbial ecology.
