As we reflect upon the pain and grief of the past few weeks as the nation responds to the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and the countless other Black men and women who have had their lives taken away by extreme acts of violence, the College is looking for ways to do a better job of sharing the stories and voices of Black and Brown people in our communities. In that spirit, we are introducing a new section to The Source and our website that elevates the voices of our BIPOC AgSci community – past and present.
My horticulture science major aligned with my interest in growing my own food and sharing that with others. I was highly influenced by my family and my high school agriculture teacher Ms. Moyer. It is important to provide sustainable and equitable ways for people to access food and ensure inequities do not exist.
While my program is in Fisheries Science, I work on the social dimension side of fisheries science. Instead of looking at fish species, I work with the people who catch the fish, manage the fish, and eat the fish. Specifically, I explore decision-making strategies with small-scale fishers in Jamaica.
Through working in the animal behavior lab at OSU and Heartland Humane Society I have found I want to continue helping shelter animals and improving their adoptability. In addition to helping companion animals in the community, I am also passionate about marine mammals and marine conservation.
