Upward Bound Ivy Blog:
Here you'll find student spotlights and program updates!
Isabellia is a senior at Muncie Central and joined Upward Bound at the beginning of 2020. Aside from gardening, karate, and diving, she has a unique hobby of taxidermy.
Isabellia became interested in taxidermy because she was curious about the anatomy of living things. She taught herself, with the help of Youtube, to learn how to become a taxidermist. Although she first found interest as a freshman, she became more serious about the hobby during the pandemic. This unusual craft has led Isabellia to realize her passion and career interests.
She plans to attend Indiana State University majoring in Biology with a specialization in Medical Laboratory Science. Her career goal is to become an elected Coroner. Isabellia says she appreciates Upward Bound because it "allows space and a room dedicated to getting your work done."
