Hello, I'm a senior, triple majoring in Journalism, Gender, Women's & Sexuality Studies, and Engaged Social Innovation. I became involved with the food pantry and food advocacy because I saw many of my fellow classmates and friends struggling get an education while also dealing with rising college tuition and low job prospects which left them unable to afford the basic necessities needed to live.
While not in school or at the pantry, I enjoy writing fiction, biking, exploring nature, cooking, and caring for my pet hedgehog Terrence. I'm also an intern at the University of Iowa Center for Human Rights, and a former editor at the Daily Iowan. After I graduate, I hope to get a job doing media work in the non-profit sector, continuing my passion for advocacy and helping others.
