My name is Delaney Dorsch and I am a second year student at Grand Valley State University in Allendale, MI studying Environmental Sustainability with a minor in Spanish and Adventure Tourism. At the moment, I want to go into ecotourism. In a nutshell, it is a sustainable method of traveling and not putting such a large impact on smaller destinations that cannot sustain themselves because of mass tourism.
Some special skills of mine are I am learning Spanish, so I can assist in my bilingual services. I am also certified in CPR, first aid, and AED training. Also, I have some savviness in Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Premiere Pro. At my university, I am apart of the Student Environmental Coalition and in the Alpha Sigma Tau sorority with a position holder as the Director of Visual Identity. In my spare time, I enjoy being outside, painting, finding new music artists to listen to, making jewelry, taking pictures, thrifting, reading, and going to concerts when they were safe to attend.
This project relates to me because I believe it is an integral skill to learn all types of writing. Technical writing and explaining tasks in a seamless light is not my best suit, so I have the mentality that there is no better time to learn about it than now.
Some other fun facts are that I really want to adopt a cat and some of my favorite bands/musical artists are the Grateful Dead, Mac Miller, MF DOOM, and The Strokes.
- A fellow hobby of mine is basking in nature or doing anything outdoors. I enjoy hiking, hammocking, and even rock climbing. Here is a picture of me hiking!
- One project of mine was in a class about the Great Lakes and other water resources. For our final project, we were allowed free range to do any medium of academia. I decided to do an art project. While brainstorming, I knew I wanted to use discarded trash and form it into a piece of art. I went to Grand Haven Beach in Michigan and picked up trash. I pieced together this painting-like sculpture with the trash I accumulated to create the message “Let’s Eat…. Our Natural Resources!” It was rooted from the surplus of food wrappings I found and the exploitation of our natural resources from human activity.
