I first got interested in climate change and environmentalism when I took the course AP Environmental Science in high school. In the course I learned about different issues happening to the planet and different groups that are trying to help, support, and stop the changes that are effecting the earth. Climate change is one of the big topics that I learned about and it is any changes in temperature, precipitation, or wind patterns, among other effects, that occur over several decades or longer. We also learned about the influence of human beings on nature which is also known as anthropogenic. It got me more interested in the topic knowing that a lot of the issues were human caused, which means that there is more hope in fixing or lessening the issues, rather than not knowing where the source of the issues are coming from. The career that I am currently considering is working in the medical field as a Physicians Assistant. This career path correlates to environmentalism because the environment and our surroundings have a influence on our health. For example, the air that people are breathing in, the water that people are drinking, and the food that people are eating all affect their health. In order to be healthy the air needs to be safe to breathe in, the water needs to be filtered properly, and the food needs to be clean and even better if its organic. As a physicians assistant, they care for people everyday who come into the hospitals and offices with health issues. Indirectly, environmentalism effects people, and those people are going to physician assistants, so they are all connected by a chain of events. Overall, I am very interested in learning about the environment and all the ways that we can improve the damages occurring and affecting Earth.
