Nature is my biggest inspiration and astonishes me with its constantly changing state of being. I love how mathematics can quantify and explain nature, from the microscopic to the macroscopic world. It truly is the universal language of the universe. My appreciation for math and how it applies to nature is the reason I decided to pursue my education in Astrophysics and Mathematics. I love the sky and the Universe it reflects. Especially growing up in New Mexico, where our sky is one of the most beautiful in the world. It is what sparked my interest in Astronomy and Physics. Physics is just the mathematical breakdown of the laws of the universe, from subatomic particles to entire galaxies. If you can learn math, you can do Physics. However, I completely understand that math is very intimidating to people and is one of the hardest subjects for many to learn. When teaching math I like to help people breakdown their mental wall, “I just can’t do it” or “I am no good at math.” You would be amazed how many students I have had who in the beginning believed math was there hardest subject, then, found out down the road, that they actually had a knack for it. I enjoy helping people learn mathematics and its applications. There is no better feeling then helping people become proficient in a math and physics. I believe if you set your mind to something and work at it, anything is possible, even learning math and physics.
