Fall 16 Ambassador
I attend Hamilton College and am majoring in environmental studies and biology. I have always been interested in the interconnectivity between topics in our environment and the health of our society. I chose the Umbra Institute because I could blend my interests in food and sustainability with my passion for Italian language and culture. Umbra provided me with countless, one-of-a-kind opportunities to observe firsthand all of the principles and topics I learned in the classroom, meet producers, ask them questions, taste their product, and walk away with one experience of a lifetime after the other.
