Name: Shellsea Sherman.
Hometown: Riverside native, born and raised.
Institution: Riverside City College
Major: Geology - I haven't narrowed it down to a specific field yet because there are just too many choices and they all interest me. My goal is to transfer to UCR in 2018 so that gives me another year or so to figure it out.
How I got interested in my major: For as long as I can remember I have loved geology, everything from unique land forms to fossils to earthquakes. It wasn't until recently that I really decided to go for it and make a career out of it.
I have Dr. Phelps at RCC to thank for reigniting my excitement for learning everything that I can about geology. I'm really looking forward to working with the mentors in the GEODE program. This is going to be a great experience!
