Entering Farmer: #20292

I am a 27-year old master’s student in Education, Development and Community Engagement at Penn State University in the Department of Agricultural Economics, Sociology, and Education. I spent the first 20 years of my life in Central PA then enlisted in the Navy as a Construction Mechanic. After a 5 year enlistment I returned to Penn State to pursue my education and was conferred my bachelor’s in Agricultural Science with a minor in Forest Ecosystems. My current goal is to start a farm and join the Veteran Farmer Network by creating a nonprofit that will focus on empowering veterans and community members to pursue careers in agriculture. I think there are a few things as important as feeding the country, and I hope that I can become a part of the solution to the problems we are seeing on a national and global scale. I have experience working with multiple NGOS, academia, and state-level organizations.
