Your goal in the world of social media:
"To inform my followers and friends about how forestry and natural resources is extremely important. Most people don’t understand logging and forest management are extremely good to maintain a sustainable resource. Its like educating people that fire is good for forests, its been taboo that fire is bad. When I first started school my family thought I was getting a degree to be a logger and didn’t understand the difference of a forester until I educated them."-Jennilyn
