Gabriela Picayo 

My name is Gabi.  I'm originally from New York/The Virgin Islands.  In high school I went up to AP calculus, but I took two years off so I'm hoping this will prove to be refreshing.  I was in Sustainable Aquatic Ecosystems the first two quarters of the year and left because I didn't feel I was being challenged enough.  I'm excited to be able to take this class and be doing math again.  I'm extremely interested in learning the modeling aspects as I was never very into computers but feel it's important to learn if I want to be in the science field.  In my previous program I had the opportunity to learn Excel and play around with Stella a little bit, both of which I enjoyed.  In addition to this class I'm also taking a black and white photography class.  My intention is to go to graduate school for Oceanography.
