Since my last post, I have researched the younger Leyla Arsan and here are my findings:
Leyla Arsan was born and raised in Southeast Asia, spending most of that time in Hong Kong. She came to the United States at the age of 14 for secondary studies and she has been here ever since. Leyla did her undergraduate studies at Prescott College in Arizona, where she double majored in environmental studies and adventure education. She was able to take advantage of a rare opportunity and complete her field research at the college’s field research station in Bahia Kino, Sonora, Mexico. Her focus was inter-tidal ecology. After completing her undergraduate degree, Leyla spent several years as a raft guide, Outward Bound instructor, and natural history guide in Alaska. Last year she decided to return to school and further her education in fisheries science.
Fisheries Science? Ladies and Gentlement of the Net, THIS Leyla Arsan is FAR more interesting than that!
