Hellooo! My name is Teressa. I’m taking a break from the rigors of science education and research to hike the Appalachian Trail – talk about a change in scenery! Beyond science, I love nature, animals, art, music, and travelling. I recently graduated from college with two degrees, neuroscience, and zoology – a challenge indeed, but hiking the AT will be a challenge unlike any other. Scientists are supposed to be curious…is ditching society to hike in the woods for months too curious, or just curious enough? I think the latter =)
Blogging for The Trek is an amazing opportunity – but have you truly considered if it's right for you?
If the goal of science is to learn more about the world around and within us, then isn’t hiking the AT just a unique approach to science?
