My name is Ivan Garcia and I am currently a junior majoring in Public Administration. I work full time as a firefighter/paramedic for Miami Dade Fire Rescue. I am very excited to be taking this course as I feel it will give me a better understanding of how research is conducted and why certain methods are used in specific instances. Furthermore, I believe this class will also help me evaluate and comprehend current research findings.
Five years from now, I would like to be promoted as a Lieutenant for the fire service and would like to be in the process of acquiring my master’s degree in Public Administration. On my free time I enjoy scuba diving, exercising, and spending time with my three rambunctious dogs. I do not spend much time in front of the computer, but when I am online, I enjoy visiting websites like YouTube and eBay.
