After completing my terminal degree, I want to work for a salient agricultural-research organization that has tangible influence on food policy – such as the US Department of Agriculture, Food & Drug Administration, or International Food Policy Research Institute.

I highly recommend applying for the La Follette School Summer Policy Learning Experience (internship grant) – it made possible my internship in Portugal!

I envision a future in which all groups – public and private – have a vested interest in a sustainable planet and human welfare at large. 

Graduating and continuing students in the La Follette School’s Accelerated Program gathered Monday, May 6 to welcome incoming students and share advice and wisdom for a successful transition into the master’s degree program. Ben McBride, Jonny Vannucci, and Sally Rohrer helped plan this first-time event.

On one of my first days in the program, a faculty member told our cohort, “If you’re interested in making money, you’re in the wrong program. We’re in the business of making the world a better place.” From that moment, I knew I made the right choice.

The rigorous nature of the school and the natural competition with students taught me what it would take to succeed and make a difference in a professional environment.
