What do you like about the UD College of Agriculture and Natural Resources?
I like that CANR provides a small college atmosphere while still being part of a larger university. This allows me to make deeper connections with professors and other students. Also, the UDairy is amazing!
What is your most memorable AG or UD experience?
I took the Cow to Cone class over winter break and I got to learn about the ice cream making process and industry. For our final, we got to work hands on at the creamery and make our own product. I made a mocha and hot chocolate flavored waffle cone that was coated in chocolate. It was so much fun to apply the knowledge that I had learned over the semester in a creative and hands-on way.
What are your career goals?
I hope to go to culinary school after I complete my undergrad degree and then work in the product development field.
What is an interesting or unusual fact about you?
I come from a large Italian family and have over 30 first cousins!
What is your favorite book, movie or song?
Book: The Harry Potter series. I've read every book at least 3 times and have seen every movie.
