my name is amanda larsen. i am 14 years old. i want to become a marine biologist. i know im young but thats a good thing! i had wanted to be one when i was young and didnt even know what it meant. however recently i have been looking at this again and this is really what i love doing. i love looking at the ocean and its life, from bull headed parrot fish to fresh water clams. i fawn over every picture of the ocean i get and so now i think i am certain that i want to be here, in this field. and so now i want to know how i become a marine biologist, what do i have to do? is there somewhere i should go? please i want help because like i said, i am young, but i know this is where i want to be.

Well it takes a lot of time. Most go to school for it. They study in college, wich means you need to learn as much as you can. So study hard, and do good in school.
