Bailee, from Walkerton, Indiana, is studying agribusiness and agronomy in the College of Agriculture. She grew up on a family farm with a variety of animals, including goats, chickens and horses, and is excited to explore agriculture and food security abroad. Food security and sustainability are not areas that many agriculture students get the opportunity to explore. She hopes this tangible experience through the Global Food Challenge will open her eyes to the opportunities in this sector of agriculture so she can make a difference with her career.
