My academic interest is to pursue environmental sciences and agricultural engineering. I believe that people should not only be able to maintain their environment healthy, but also themselves through agriculture practices. Through Cultivate Immokalee I have learned to interact with other members of our community and I’ve also learned some agricultural skills from the various hands on projects we’ve done. Cultivate Immokalee also allows me to give back to my community and meet professionals that have the same interests of which I am interested in. I eventually plan on returning to my community and entwining myself with any Cultivate Immokalee projects while applying my knowledge towards the succession of these missions.
