Cabrillo National Monument
Setareh Nouriboshehri (pronounced se-tuh-ra noori-boosh-ary), moved to San Diego, California in 2001 and has yet to find a good excuse to leave. Growing in southern California meant bouncing around local hikes and parks, taking daily drives (with the windows down!) to local beaches, and making memorable trips to Cabrillo National Monument.
Setareh upheld her family's tradition of attending San Diego State University, wherein she obtained a B.S. in Civil Engineering. And though she swore she would never pursue the environmental aspects of that major, she nonetheless always found herself signing up to research in watershed field studies and eventually interning at Cabrillo National Monument.
Setareh's love for her city, passion for the National Park Service, and experience as a long-term volunteer has inspired her to come back for second year as a Community Volunteer Ambassador!
