The notion that conventional education has made our culture lose touch with their land has made waste and malnutrition rampant. I am not a bleeding heart Environmentalist, but more of an observer of society. There is something unbelievably romantic to me about not being enslaved by other entities for food, as well as water and electricity. These lifestyles are not advertised due to the fact that it would not be profitable for media vehicles with a large viewership. I believe there is much more development potential in the communication among those who believe in the injustices of food deserts and to develop an unconventional educational source, applicable to the student's climate region and topography.
Still in process
Preparing myself for the field of sustainability in a way that will make people who are not sympathetic to my beliefs still take me seriously as someone who believes in development and profit.

I am an Environmental Studies Major at Ramapo College, due to graduate Spring 2014. I have a innate desire to reduce waste and increase efficiency in our current society.
