Last time, we explored what participants in the 2019 Land O’Lakes Global Food Challenge Emerging Leaders Program learned and how they planned to put those learnings into practice. Here, the Emerging Leaders talk about what made the biggest impressions on them during their travels.
Claire Lentsch, from Farmington, Minnesota, is studying agricultural and food business management in the College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences at the University of Minnesota. She moved off the family farm in South Dakota, eventually finding herself in the Greater Minneapolis Area in 2016. On campus, she is involved in a variety of agriculture-based organizations as well as student government specializing in policy. Through the Global Food Challenge, Lentsch is enthusiastic to explore her passion of agriculture, contribute her strategic intellect and discover innovative solutions to feed the world.
