Hi, my name's Erin. I'm twenty years old and I'm a sophomore at Monmouth University. I'm majoring in marine biology and minoring in psychology. My dream is to work with marine mammals. I have an amazing boyfriend and I love him with all my heart. One day I hope to live where the palm trees are. Questions and comments are welcome! :)
Walt Disney World is like another home to me. I've been there once almost every other year and I love everytime I get to go back. I hope to one day do the Disney College Program at Walt Disney World.
6/24/12 - the best day of my life. My boyfriend really is the best thing that has ever happened to me. He treats me like a princess and I love him so much.
I love my mom so much. She really is my best friend. I'm an only child, so I am really close to my family. But I am proud to say that my mom is my best friend and always will be.
I have loved dolphins since I was a little girl. My parents took me to SeaWorld Orlando when I was 5 and it's been my dream ever since to work with marine mammals. I have seen the documentary Blackfish, and I believe that every person out there should see it as well. I can not even look at SeaWorld the same way as I used to. It's quite disgusting what I learned from Blackfish, but I am so thankful I did. I do owe my dream to SeaWorld, because without that first visit I would not be where I am today. However, I do not support, or will ever support anything that has to do with SeaWorld again.
I had the amazing opportunity to meet Winter the dolphin last summer and it was a life changing experience. I realized then how much I really want to go into rescue training as a career. Winter was so beautiful and amazing, I didn't want to leave CMA.
A few years ago, my parents got me trainer for a day at Discovery Cove as a Christmas gift. It was such an amazing day and a life changing experience. I loved how up close and personal I got with the dolphins and how much I learned that day.
I am a firm believer in saving animals. World Wildlife Fund is one of the many funds that I openly support. I hope one day I can make a difference by helping marine mammals and animals.
Many people do not know that Vampire Diaries star, Ian Somerhalder, has a foundation for saving animals and the environment. I am a huge fan of him and his foundation.
I can't stand when people wear fur. To me it doesn't show a sign of class, it shows support of cruelty to animals.
I love and support Disney's Conservation Fund wholeheartedly. I wish more people were aware about Disney's conservation efforts. I will continue to show my support to the fund in any way I can.
I have this obsession with food from Disney. I love trying new sweets and foods from there. I had my first Mickey candy apple last summer, and it was so yummy! I can't wait to go back and try another!
I love Winnie the Pooh. When I was a little girl, my Pappy would get me a Pooh movie for every holiday or occasion. It makes me feel safe and happy whenever I watch a Winnie the Pooh movie because it makes me think of him.
So proud to be part of the class of 2016!
