I am a U2 student at McGill University, currently majoring in Food Science and Nutrition with a minor in Ecological Agriculture. I have a passion for healthy eating and I love being creative in the kitchen with whole plant-based foods. Another passion that I have discovered recently is gardening, which has given me a whole new perspective on food. In a world where farming and the value of our food is increasingly being lost, I believe that it is important to become aware of the impact of our food choices and our connection with the earth. Aside from cooking, I am an outdoor enthusiast – in my spare time I enjoy traveling, camping, canoeing, trail running and mountain/road biking. In the future I hope to combine my interest in nutrition and farming to help others be more mindful of their eating habits and impact on the environment by acknowledging the process of germination all the way to consumption.
