Environmental Systems in the Outdoors Research Experience

Hello! My name is Brianna Estocapio and I’m a rising junior at Ballard High School. During my time in school, I have been competing in my area’s DECA competitions, volunteering for NHS, and participating in my high school orchestra. In my free time I enjoy writing, birding, and photography!

As a preceding Environmental Education Volunteer working with Seattle Parks and Recreation, I started the Environmental Systems in the Outdoor Research Experience with prerequisite interests in the microbial health of urban forests and presence of microplastics in community waterways, both of which I was able to expound my knowledge upon through the ESORE program. This program provided me with the connection-based learning necessary to evaluate the overall health of a system. These strategies and innovative skills have strengthened my critical thinking abilities and compel me to use similar approaches in both my research endeavors today, and future career ambitions.
