I guess there's a lot about who I am, but here are the essentials. First off, I'm a student at Arizona State University, a freshman at the moment, and I am studying secondary education focusing on French. I grew up in Indiana for my entire life before moving to AZ. This website really speaks to me. I find it inspiring and amazing to see the innovations and dreams of so many fantastic people, and I can only hope some of their genius rubs off on me.
I'm most passionate about food. Surprising since I'm becoming a teacher and not a chef, I know. I love to cook, and especially love hearing about the artisans who are bringing back food as an art.
The next time you go out to eat, stop and think for just a minute. Consider that unless you are eating organic beef, that hamburger you just ordered will contain thousands of different cows. It will contain hormones, antibiotics, and even ammonia, which is needed to kill the e.coli bacteria residing in the cows' stomachs. Consider that the chicken breast you ordered, once again, unless it is organic, is two to three times the size it should naturally be. Know that the chickens were kept in trailers devoid of any sunlight, and were never allowed out. Consider that the spinach in your salad could contain e.coli or salmonella, because the water used on the plants was contaminated. The food industry in America is a shady and dark business. One that wants us all to remain ignorant, as our wastelines bulge, and our health declines. Bon apetit.
Anything! Science, technology, literature, our Earth. It all fascinates me.
