Meteorology is a very important discipline for understanding the dynamics of the atmosphere, which is essential for all life on Earth and covers the majority of the Earth’s surface.

I started surfing when I was 12 years old and I have been obsessed with ocean waves ever since. Ever since I first started school I wanted to learn the “birth, life, and death of an oceanic swell.” I started with Meteorology so I could understand the birth of the swell; that is, the storms that create the swells.

Please help me stay at the University of Hawaii. This past semester I wasn’t able to continue with school due to financial concerns. I have used all my student loans allowed, l and currently looking for grants. You can use PayPal (my PayPal is https://www.paypal.com/myaccount/transfer/homepage/request) Anything will help, even $1.00!

When I started school I was 30 years old, and I was completely illiterate! It took many years just to get to college status, but I am proud of all my accomplishments as when I first started school 5/1=5 really confused me, and now I understand partial differential equations (PDEs) and in fact, my undergraduate studies of Atmospheric Sciences (Meteorology) pretty much including PDEs all throughout the degree, below is a common equation in Meteorology:

If you have ever seen warm or cold fronts on a weather map this is the equation for it. Really cool, right?

As I said above I have been obsessed with ocean waves ever since I started surfing. My first step was to discover how the waves were formed and now I am studying what happens when they leave their original area.  I will finally study what happens when the ocean waves enter the beach zone and become surf, which will no doubt be the most difficult part of my study.

I am very dedicated to going to graduate school for Physical Oceanography at SOEST at the University of Hawaii, Money is the only thing standing in my way. I am studying by myself at home which is challenging.
