Ryan Miller was an avid volunteer for the Orlando Science Center between the ages of fifteen and eighteen. Throughout his years volunteering, he cared for animals of all shapes and sizes including, tarantulas, snakes and baby gators. He also maintained the animal’s habitats and educated youth about the creatures and their unique attributes.
Ryan Miller “learned responsibility and respect” throughout his time at the Orlando Science Center, which in turn “taught [him] maturity and the importance of nurturing living things.” His knowledge naturally shifted over when he went into military service, within the U.S. Navy, and went from fostering living things to human beings. Ryan is now stationed in Japan and has been involved in humanitarian missions in the East including this one in Cambodia (picture).
He owes much of his successes and accomplishments to the people at the Orlando Science Center. Ryan Miller even stated, “I still have my name tag from the Orlando Science Center as a memento of a great time in my life.”
