“During my time at Purdue, I took advantage of multiple opportunities that pushed me out of my comfort zone. I’m most proud of moving across the country to pursue my AgCom degree. I'm excited to take the skills I've gained in my coursework and use them to make an impact on the agriculture industry. Being able to make a difference outside of Purdue is an incredible opportunity.”

“The world of agriculture is changing and searching for more talent and diversity to support a growing population. I wish to be a part of this movement as I participate in agriculture policy and community-supported agriculture systems to improve, educate, and foster communities who want to change the face of agriculture. Without a doubt, my future has never looked brighter now that I am graduating as a Boilermaker!”
