My name is Amanda Prystupa and I am 21 years old. I am a senior at USFSP and my major is biology with a concentration in marine biology. I am planning on graduating next spring then eventually going off to grad school. I have always had a passion for marine biology and my goal is to some day study and focus on coral reefs and their conservation. I am looking forward to this course and seeing all the different ecosystems around Florida while gaining some new field experience, especially in The Keys. In my free time I enjoy going to the beach, baking, and playing with my cat.
