Although I come from the warm sunny climate in Irvine, California, where I have been sheltered from physically intensive activities, I have always wanted to explore the pristine cold environment of the poles. From this adventure, I wish to gain new knowledge of our icy poles before they completely vanish and someday eliminate the detrimental effect we have caused and return the poles to their unaltered beauty.

After the trip, I will contact my Technology Students Association club, of which I am vice president, and brainstorm new ideas about saving the polar ice, and at the national convention, share these ideas with the world. I also plan to use my knowledge gained from this trip and combine it with what I previously learned in class to understand this unique place on earth.
