“I’m really passionate about learning and understanding the issue of hunger and how I can help those impacted by hunger. I utilized service learning to break out my passion and I created the group called Food Justice. I think it’s really important to put yourself into service learning because it really helped me develop as a leader. It helps your public speaking skills, your development as a person and your ability to see the world from different perspectives.”
