Hi everyone, my name is Delou’Von (pronounced Dehlowvon), and I am currently a senior in high school.
My hobbies include drawing abstract objects and landscape. I also like reading, which inspires me to write, another one of my hobbies. My favorite book series are: “The Divergent Series” and “The 5th Wave Series.” I like to eat a lot… like, a lot. I also like watching tv shows. My favorite tv shows are: Shadowhunters, The Vampire Diaries and Empire. I also like Supernatural, Teen Wolf and Sweet/Vicious. I enjoy anime and school more than the average teenager.
I am hoping Zoo InternQuest will help me to figure out if zoology interests me. I do enjoy the company of animals, except butterflies—I have a big fear of butterflies. I also have a strong interest in math and engineering. I’m hoping that this program will help me figure out what path I want to take in life.
