I am a senior majoring in International Relations and Citizenship & Civic Engagement. I am interested in food equity and sustainability, community development, and advocacy. During this summer I had the opportunity to begin working on SCG’s New American Foodways project teaching middle school students about food environments and systems. This semester, we are continuing the New American Foodways project to engage in research among New American families. Through my work with SCG, I hope to learn more about community based research and effective design and implementation strategies.
