In the ten years I hope I am not sick of the sea and and still be as exited as I am today in exploring the opportunities that I can seek out to be successful in the field. What I look forward to in college education at the academy learning how everything works on the ship and learning about navigation, marine life, cargo handling skills and etc. The Marine Transportation program at the USMMA is a combination of nautical science and maritime business management. I think getting a degree in science and business will be something that interests me and that I look forward to. In sports I also look forward to because they have a swimming program it is something that has been apart of my life for a very long time and its gotten me through a lot of things in my life .
Hannah Ton Mrs. Braun Honors American Literature 1 November 2015 SeaWorld Orca Breeding Should Not Be Continued When Dr. Heather Rally, a veterinarian who specializes with marine mammals, visited SeaWorld, she witnessed an orca with a severely collapsed fin and asked an “educational” guide why its fin was bent. The guide replied that it was a genetic trait just like curly or straight hair. However, Rally knows the truth, scientific evidence suggests that the high rate of dorsal fin collapse in captive orcas is due to conditions of captivity. These include spending an abnormally long time at the surface in direct sunlight and continuously swimming in tight circles.
A question that many wonder about is why is phytoplankton important? Plankton is revealed by ocean color and help show scientists where ocean currents provide nutrients for plant growth. They also help show where pollutants are poisoning the ocean preventing plant growth and where changes in the climate of the ocean are occurring. Plankton is also the foundation of the oceans food chain. As phytoplankton begin to grow and multiply, small fish eat them, then the larger animals begin to eat those smaller animals. The food chain of the ocean begins phytoplankton, then comes zooplankton, next is the predatory zooplankton, fourth is the filter feeders and last is the predatory fish. Phytoplankton is sometimes called the grass of the sea because
“My Son the Marine” by Frank Schaeffer and John Schaeffer gives us a look into the life of a mother and father; and their feelings toward their son enlisting into the Marine corp. John had aspirations of joining the military to serve his country. He had spoken to recruiters from the Army, Air force, and the Navy but had yet spoken to the Marine Corp. John was taken by the appearance of the two Marines that visited his home. After he spoke with the Marines he decided that if he was going to join the military he would definitely join the Marine Corps.
Marine organisms are animals, plants, and other living things that live in the ocean. A Marine biologist is a scientist who studies marine organisms and studies the bodies, behavior, and the history of marine organisms. They also study how marine organisms interact with each other and their environment. I have chosen to research about Marine biology because I would like to learn about sea life, the ocean, and its surrounding environment.
I even applied and got accepted in a College for Marine Biology in Key West, FL. Reason is, I love Marine life and wanted to work with Marine animals. It was my dream to work with animals and I personally love the ocean. However, things fell through and I could not attend that College in Florida because I could not afford it. So, I decided to go to Middle GA State University.
I have always wanted to help people and to help them better their lives, but I never could figure out how I could make that passion a reality, until the day I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety at age eleven. After that rough period in life, I learned how I could help other people. I could listen to them and try to help them better understand themselves. Life is much easier for a person when they have people who believe in them like a psychologist or therapist. My college plan would be to earn a bachelor, and master degree in Psychology to become a Behavior Analyst.
Throughout my adolescent life, I never had an idea of what I wanted to do as a career. It seemed as if all my peers had some kind of idea but I was just stuck. If I knew one thing about what I wanted to do when I was older, it would be that I wanted to help make a difference for the better along with helping others improve their lives. When I decided that I wanted to major in criminal justice, I kept that factor in mind.
I think that SeaWorld is an amazing facility. I love the fact that they rescue sea creatures from their inevitable death. I love the fact that children love to come here. I love the fact that this place causes children to subconsciously learn something. I love to bring my kids here on the weekend to watch the shows that the trainers put on with the orcas. I think that having animals in captivity is an amazing thing. If animals were not allowed to exist in captivity, my children would know absolutely nothing about what goes on under the sea. I think that SeaWorld opening was one of the best things to ever happen to this world.
When asked what they want to be when they grow up, most children say astronaut, doctor, president, or veterinarian. I was one of those kids that replied “a veterinarian” when asked by others. Usually, when one gets older, that career goal changes into something different, but not for me. I did not know it then, but my dream of being a veterinarian would stick with me throughout my life, and influence the choices I make in order to reach that long-term goal. I come from a family that expresses an interminable love for animals.
College was always one of my long term goals as I continued with my education. Throughout the years I began to work harder and harder so I could secure my future. I knew that getting to college would not be easy. I am about to embark on a four year journey in one of the hardest fields to pursue. I will continue my education as a Nursing major at a four year university.
The ocean… The sound of the waves applauding and hugging the shore. The internal sounds of the body out in the world’s biggest swimming pool. The echo of my sister’s laughter. The salty smell so strong that one can taste it dancing on ones taste buds.
When I graduate from high school I'd like to be a surgeon. I want to be a surgeon because it seems like a cool and interesting job. I think it would be an amazing experience to hold a human heart. I first saw this job and got really interested in it because of a T.V. show, Greys Anatomy. This career is important because it saves lives.
