Danielle Hewitt from Mundelein, Illinois will attend Purdue University in the fall, where she plans to major in Landscape Architecture, with a Minor in Horticulture. “With this career, I can combine my love for plants with my artistic talents and eye for detail.” Hewitt studied botany as a young student and collected 75 native plant species. She says that a past school trip to Costa Rica, where she toured the Cloud Rainforest, is where she developed a passion for plants and the potential to discover and study as many different species as possible.
