My name is Jenna Campbell, and I am from a small town in Western Pennsylvania which is located about forty minutes outside Pittsburgh. I think that, from the moment I stepped on campus, I knew that Penn State was the right school for me, and I feel the same way about this class now.
I am actually a Journalism major, and that’s pretty much the main reason why I decided to take this course. I really do enjoy learning about and discussing scientific things, and I think it is a vital and intriguing aspect of our society. However, I could not spend the rest of my life in a science field. I love biology, anatomy and physiology but not enough to pursue it. And there was not a time in my life where I have been able to understand chemistry or physics. So in order to sum things up, I am not a science major because it doesn’t come to me naturally and it never will.
Now, before I continue any further, I must first explain that I didn’t stay in this class strictly because science and I don’t like one another. I stayed in this class because I can not wait to discuss science in a way I never have before AND because I love to blog. I not only have my own personal blog, but I also wrote for a local newspaper through a youth program back home. We actually ran a blog that you can see here. That youth program is pretty much the whole reason why I’m a Journalism (and not science) major here at PSU so I have to represent and give them a little shout out.
Well, that’s pretty much all I can think to say right now, but I will leave you all with one little fun fact before I end this post. I took a road trip across California over the summer, and I made a lot of very interesting and amazing discoveries that I may like to write about in the future. Until then though, here are two pictures of a Sequoia tree in Sequoia National Park and an amazing sunset in Santa Monica.
