About

Garden Instructor, Agricultural Worker, Student

Hi, I’m Cecilia !

I was born in Los Angeles, California, and raised in Omaha, Nebraska. I received an Associate’s degree in Horticulture, Land Systems, and Management- Small Market Farming in February 2017 from Metropolitan Community College. Currently, I am working towards a Bachelor’s degree in environmental science with a focus in geography and planning from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. I plan to finish my degree in December 2020.

My education and experience have allowed me to pursue my passion for helping assist individuals in the community who are suffering from food insecurity by teaching them how to garden. By teaching individuals how to gardens, it would empower the individuals and their families by providing them with the skills, resources, and knowledge on how to be self-sufficient.

During my free time, I enjoy to garden/farm, traveling to a new places, photography, web development, volunteering within the community, and working on academic research. After graduation, I plan to continue my studies in sustainable agriculture and eventually get my Ph.D.

One of my goals is to own a small sustainable farm with fruits and vegetables. I view my education as a patchwork quilt of academic training and practical experience that grows with my every accomplishment. These, collectively, are a representation of who I am as a student, employee, environmental activist and a lifelong learner. I plan to use my knowledge to create a positive social change within my community, especially for those who are the most vulnerable.

  1. Gardening is something I enjoy trying but always find that I have way too many other interests that put it on the back burner and one thing about gardening is that you have to stay on top of the situation or before you know it you are growing nothing but weeds. I can appreciate the time and dedication that you must put into your endeavor and maybe one of these days gardening will ‘stick’ with me. For now I’ll just keep making my attempts and have a bit of fun in the process. 🙂 Keep up the great work and I can’t wait to see what you grow in the future. Stay safe!

  2. Hi, Cecilia!
    Thanks for visiting my little blog. Majoring in library science and horticulture is actually an excellent and valuable match. One of my best friends is a librarian and keen amateur horticulturist and is now in an awesome position at one of the premier botanical gardens in the country. Best of luck to you!

      You’re very welcome. Thanks for telling me about your friend. I’m going to work twice as hard now, and hopefully I’m able to finish my major in horticulture and library science, within the next 4 years.. Thank you! 😀
