Future career aspirations: My goal is to work in global conflict management. Throughout my career, I want to continually be learning about how the world reacts to conflict and what it takes to obtain peace.
Top 3 goals for your time abroad: 1. Explore how positive relations between agri-business industries and smaller sustainable agricultural-based areas can aid a country’s all-around development
2. Learn how Tuscany's grassroots leaders mold their agricultural methods to fit the needs of the people and the environment.
3. Immerse myself in an entirely new culture and language and gain more of a global perspective
