This is my first honors college conference. I opted to take it easy this year and see how all of this is done. I entered my artwork on insect adaptations. I enjoyed sitting through the talks from my class mates and the poster sessions. My favorite part though was talking about my artwork. I love talking bout insects and photography.
My work was selected to represent SPC at the Southern Regional Honors Conference in March in Birmingham, Alabama. I am a bit nervous to travel solo, I will be with the crew from SPC but to me it is solo without immediate family. I have a hotel room to myself and an evening of talking about my artwork. I am excited but nervous. I am the youngest student to be going so I hope that everything works out okay.
I am also serving as an ad hoc member of the education and outreach committee for the Entomological Society of America. I had to login to a zoom call and learn bout what the plans are for the conference in November in Orlando. I was very nervous and couldn’t really get a chance to speak. I am sure things will go better for me on the next call.
