Hi everyone! I'm a junior in the Spanish & Portuguese department planning on getting certificates in Journalism, Latin American Studies and Environmental Studies. As part of the Service Focus program, I spent the summer before my sophomore year working for a non-profit food politics publication called The New Food Economy, where I wrote stories about anything from 'summer hunger' among low-income schoolchildren in the United States to the absurd abundance of national food holidays. I hope to go into journalism in the future and ideally write within the nexus of food, culture and the environment, and Service Focus has really helped me explore that realm with off-campus adventures and rich conversations with peers and faculty. On campus, I am an ARCA in Forbes, belly dance with Raqs, do freelance reporting with the University Press Club and try and make fun bread concoctions in 2D co-op!
