About Me:
I'm from the territory of American Samoa but I am currently living in Hilo, HI. I am an islander who has never set foot in the states until 2015. I love to dance Samoan dances, sing Samoan songs, play guitar (I'm still a beginner), and babysit dogs. Anyways, I'm excited to see what summer has in store for me and cannot wait to explore.

About Me:
Hi! I am Selena. I thoroughly enjoy plant-pollinator interactions. My favorite habitat is maritime chaparral because its so unusual. My favorite flowers are the fiesta flower (Pholistoma auritum) and the pink evening primrose (Oenothera speciosa). When I am not studying I am usually running, hiking, collecting plants or going to concerts.

Justin Winiecki is studying Biology at University of Illinois at Chicago and is expecting to graduate in 2020
About Me:
I've been studying at Oakton Community College for the past 4 years, working on, and completing, my Associates in Science, while simultaneously saving up enough money to make my future university experience 'reliable'. I've worked in the biology lab at Oakton for the past 2 years to do so, while also considering possible career choices/ambitions post graduation. I'm an amateur microbiologist, uncertified personal trainer, and an avid Dota 2 player.
