“What’s the strangest thing you’ve done?”

“When I was 9 I was at my grandma’s house for the summer and there were these guys who used to hang out in my grandma’s backyard but they always made fun of me and were really rude. One time there was a wasp that landed in my hair and the boys ran away and laughed at me so I borrowed a jar from my grandma, knowing they would return later. I used the jar to collect wasps and when they returned to gather in the backyard, I retrieved the jar, shook it violently, and then threw it at the group of boys. So, I created a wasp-bomb when I was 9 … I think that’s kind of strange.“

“I think my childhood has a lot to do with why I’m fascinated with nature so much and why I study what I study. I had tons of animal books and watched Zoboomafoo religiously. Rest in peace little buddy. I don’t want to be just another person aware of but still ignoring ocean acidification or climate change. Those things are really important, and no one seems to care much. It’s frustrating but I want to do something. I want to save the world and all the things I’ve grown to love. Like cuttlefish, they’re rad.”

“I remember being in kindergarten and really wanting to be a detective for some reason. One day, I took some paint and painted footprints on the classroom floor, got a magnifying glass and pretended to investigate the scene. Obviously, I got in trouble with the teacher, so I ran and hid underneath a desk and was crying, refusing to come out. Eventually, they had to call my dad who came to my school and took me home.”
