Growing up on my family’s hobby farm in rural southeast Wisconsin, I developed my passion for agriculture at a young age. My summers were dedicated to prepping show pigs and cattle for our county fair, and the rest of the year I cared for my family’s home-farrowed swine and beef herd. Through long hours of work, often after a tiring sports practice or late at night when I wanted to be doing just about anything else, I gained an appreciation for agriculture and the responsibility farmers have for the people they feed.

Nestled between the Nsere and Weruweru rivers and on the high mesas surrounding Mount Kilimanjaro lies Two Bridges Farm. Fields sprawl a vast 316 acres, with tall, proud coffee plants swaying in the breeze. As we walked into the main office, we were greeted by the sight of women in bright skirts carrying giant bags of coffee beans on their heads.

A'ysha Callahan is from Waukegan, Illinois, and she is studying food science at Alabama A&M University. She grew up in a relatively urban area, so wasn’t exposed directly to agriculture – this prompted her to start asking questions about how the food we eat is produced. Through high school she volunteered at soup kitchens and food banks, which exposed her to how prevalent food insecurity is in U.S. communities. These experiences intensified her interest in agriculture and helped her grow a passion for finding a solution to feed the world.
