Jhulian Gutierrez

Class of 2019

I was born and raised in Miami, Florida, but currently reside in Hempstead, Texas. Ever since I was a young boy, I have been fascinated with zoology and wildlife conservation. Growing up, my aunt, who is also my mentor, would tell me stories of her career in environmental science and working as a park ranger. These stories left me in awe, as my love for wildlife conservation grows stronger every minute. I dream to one day have a career which I love and that will challenge me every day. As a first generation college student, this has become a passion. After I graduated high school, I moved northwest of Houston, Texas and began taking courses at Lone Star College, where I am pursuing an associates degree. I then want to transfer to a university to obtain my Bachelors in marine zoology. I am very grateful and look forward to the opportunity to work at Hopewell Furnace national Historic Site in Elverson, Pennsylvania. I plan to take all of the experience and to utilize the skills I acquire towards my future career.
