Can math and engineering help feed the world? Growing up in the Northwest, where agriculture is dominant, I pondered the daunting question: How can we possibly continue feeding the world’s growing population?
My mom was the first to suggest biological and agricultural engineering might be the perfect fit for me, and there is no better place to study engineering than the University of Idaho. I am honored to serve as president of the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers at Idaho. This transformational leadership experience has taught me to take pride in my major and our department.
None of this would be possible without you. I am so blessed to have been able to receive scholarships to study the subject that I love. Many of my fellow students must take on a part or full-time job, but the scholarships that you help provide allow me to focus on my passion for engineering.
Working very hard and giving my all is my way of saying thank you.
Without your continuing support, it would be nearly impossible for students like me to advance in their education and have an impact on issues we care about.
