  10. Dear Sir/Madam

    I am a graduate from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Kumasi Ghana with both a Diploma and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Natural Resource Management.

    During my university education, one of the courses that I came to appreciate most was remote sensing and Geographical Information Systems (GIS) because of its application in natural resources management. I therefore developed an interest to build myself to become an expert in its application in the area of forest resources management.

    As a young scientist who is highly motivated, hardworking and enthusiatic, I believe that remote sensing and GIS will soon become a basic tool in promoting the protection of the earth’s natural environment considering the rate at which the world is fast turning into a global village.

    I am looking for Masters Graduate Assistantship at WVU in Remote Sensing, GIS and forest ecosystem ecology

  19. Michelle Alejado says:

    To whom it may concern,

    My name is Michelle Alejado from Philippines. I took my Bachelor’s Degree in Forestry at the University of the Philippines and graduated last April 2006. Forest Ecology, Restoration Ecology, Geology, Plant Botany, Taxonomy and Integrated Forest Resource Management wherein GIS and GPS were introduced were some of the major courses I took during college. I am currently working as a Forester of a watershed project in a non-profit organization in the Philippines for two years. I also had an experience working in a microtechnique laboratory assisting a teaching fellow for her PhD Dissertation. I just finished attending a six-month environmental restoration training in Seattle, Washington last December 10, 2008. Right now, I am planning to take a masteral degree related to GIS. I want to use this knowledge and skills for our watershed project because GIS is a very essential tool in forestry planning and monitoring.

    Should you have any clarification, please feel free to contact me in my email address ([email protected]).

    Thank you very much.
