Today has felt like a vacation more than the rest of our time here. All we had to do this morning was our presentation which went pretty well. Great job Sienna and Bryce for getting the best presentation award. They studied how much time cleaner wrasse spent cleaning fish of different sizes. It was an awesome study!
For the rest of the day we played hide and go seek tag and swam in the lagoon. Swimming by the spotted eagle rays and the turtles was for sure my favorite. I also love that the parrot fish let me get so close to them.
I have learned to make deliberate decisions during this trip. To make deliberate choices surrounding my faith and my school work. I have also realized that I can do anything I want to do. If I want to study fish in foreign countries, I can. A main reason people have a hard time being scientists is because they don’t know how to fail, but that is a part of life and a part of the scientific process. Nothing successful comes before a failure. My goal is to master the art of failure. I am so grateful for everyone who has helped me out to get here. I am especially grateful to my God for blessing me with opportunities and showing me the joy of dancing in the waves.
