“My favorite thing about SU is the encouraging faculty. I am thankful that many of my professors have taken the time to find out my interests, encourage me to do things out of my comfort zone, and acknowledge my accomplishments.”
Since graduating in December 2016 from the environmental science program, Diamonique has been living in Puerto Rico assisting with a seedling census of tropical trees in El Yunque Rainforest.
At SU, Diamonique participated in a 10-week research internship in Puerto Rico where she studied the size class distribution of Pterocarpus officinalis, a wetland tree, between two wetland forest stands and assessed the progress of a near 25 years old restoration project. “From my research experience on and off campus and hosting community events, I’ve learned that I must help bridge the gap between the scientific community and the public so that everyone can see the value of protecting the environment.” She says the connections she made at her internship two years ago helped her secure her current position.
