About Me

Hi! My name is Diana and I'm from Mahtomedi, Minnesota. I am currently attending the University of Wisconsin- La Crosse where I am majoring in Biology with a Biomedical concentration and a minor in Spanish; what I plan to do after graduating is still a question mark.

I chose to do this organism because I used to volunteer at the Como Zoo in St. Paul and loved to walk by their exhibit. So if you're ever in the area I definitely suggest visiting it!
