University of Minnesota
Sierra, from Sherburn, Minnesota, is studying agriculture and food business management in the College of Food, Agriculture and Natural Resource Sciences. Having grown up in rural Minnesota, she became interested in agriculture through hands-on experience in the field and holding leadership roles in her local FFA club. Her participation with community service organizations like From the Ground Up and Cooking Matters provided a solid foundation for her to learn more about creating food security and driving change in agriculture. Through the Global Food Challenge, she hopes to contribute to solutions that alleviate food insecurity here and around the world.
