My name is Aedan Matsuno Neves Azeka, I was born on February 2nd, 2003, and I can indeed confirm I am a Homo sapien. I love science, but mainly biology. When I'm a little older, I intend to become a mammalogist at the Chicago Field Museum, but I love all animals. I've been interested in them ever since I could remember, but my love for them scientifically really started about a year ago when I stumbled upon thebrainscoop, my favorite Youtube channel featuring Emily Graslie, Chief Curiosity Curator at the Field Museum. When I visited the Field Museum, I fell in love with the hyena diorama, which thebrainscoop raised money to create. Another big part of my love for biology was my 7th grade science teacher, Ms. White.
I am an INTJ which means introversion, intuition, thinking, judgment, according to the Meyers-Briggs personality test, the most accurate personality test in the world. Less than 0.8% of the population are INTJ's and only 1% of those are females. Some famous INTj's include Michelle Obama, Professor Moriarty, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Vladimir Putin, and Katniss Everdeen. We are all introverted, brilliant, animal loving, human hating people who, according to the 16 personalities website, has a 50/50 chance of being a villain or good guy. I hope I become a villain. It just seems way more interesting.
My music taste is very... refined. I like everything from hardcore dystopian metal to modernized 80's british glam pop to ukulele screamo to good ol' punk rock. You wouldn't know it if you saw me, but I love my crazy haired, eyeliner wearing, band tee, black clothes only culture. They're a big part of who I am. I honestly could imagine myself being totally lost regarding my personality if I didn't discover Panic! At The Disco in early 2016. I wouldn't be going to one of their concerts or discovering other bands or even meeting some of my friends today.
My favorite animal is the Coendou prehensilis, or more commonly known as Brazilian Porcupine. I have come to this conclusion after much deliberation, but it just seems fitting to me. The Brazilian Porcupine is very intelligent, cute, and interesting. For example, it's evolved over millions of years so that it's tail has no quills so it can hang on branches. They are vegetarians eating mostly fruits. They have small hands with non opposable thumbs that can pull apart fruit. It makes loud sounds and sways back and forth when threatened. I discovered this animal while watching Animal Wonders, a youtube channel based in Indiana that has hundreds of animals ambassadors to teacher children in public schools about different animals. The Brazilian Porcupine at animal wonders is named Kemosabe and is my absolute favorite of the animal ambassadors. In his enclosure, he has a tree and a basket attached to the tallest branch that he pulls up, sometimes for fun and sometimes because Jesse, the owner of Animal Wonders, puts a treat inside. I hope to be able to study porcupines like Kemosabe soon.
