Flag Raising I was born and mostly raised here in Cheyenne but moved to Windsor, CO about six years ago. I ended up here at Laramie County Community College after I did my first semester in West Palm Beach, FL as a marine biology major. I have always been intrigued and passionate about the ocean and all the life in it. I got certified as a scuba diver when I was 14 and since then have accrued a professional rating as a PADI Divemaster and work through Colorado Scuba Diving Academy in Fort Collins, CO. You may be wondering why I am now a Mass Media major? Turns out I hate being in a lab and I hate chemistry. I have found that I can continue with my scuba diving education and also have a Mass Media degree to help advocate for our oceans through advertising and photography. This is my last full time semester at LCCC and I hope to graduate next semester and continue in Mass Media to get my bachelor’s degree. In the midst of all this future planning, I got engaged in September to my fiancé Austin, who also shares my passion for the ocean and is a PADI Instructor. We intend to move to Key West, FL and start our lives together doing what we do best, showing others the incredible underwater world.
