As I sit down to write this farewell blog, I feel overwhelmed with emotion because of the amazing experiences the Land O’Lakes Global Food Challenge has given us 10 Emerging Leaders. However, this blog isn’t meant to dwell on our farewell, but rather to highlight the learning experiences we encountered.
Sarah, from Osceola, Wisconsin, is studying supply chain and operations management and Spanish studies at the Carlson School of Management. Having participated in a three-day poverty simulation through the nonprofit Heifer International, Sarah was inspired to become informed about the global food crisis and what she could do to help. She feels that working with Land O’Lakes to solve this issue is an amazing opportunity to learn about how an organization comes together to solve a goal and deal with an issue that is tough to define. She is excited to be part of the Global Food Challenge and work toward finding meaningful and sustainable ways to combat hunger and food insecurity in our world.
