Major / minor: Management Major, Sustainability and Spanish minors
What is your project about? As a Sustainable Food Systems Fellow for the Center for Sustainability, I will be conducting research and creating a report on the SCU food system. This role will include reviewing past purchases made by the school and evaluating their sustainability. In addition, I will be creating a proposal with suggestions for the school to improve the sustainability of our food system to help not only reach university goals but to help make a difference on a larger scale in combating the climate crisis.
How will this fellowship support you in your future scholarship/career goals? It is my ultimate career goal to work either in the public or private sector to help organizations and/or businesses improve their sustainability initiatives, and this fellowship will provide me with the practical experience and skills to do that. I want to do work that will help in our efforts to combat the climate crisis and improve our society as a whole. Because sustainable food systems have always been a passion of mine, I am so excited to have this fellowship, as it will be an incredible opportunity for me to use as a stepping stone on that path.
