“I See It As A Right That Everyone Should Have Access To Food.”


I am an African-American female (She/Her) with strong Creole-French roots! Having Raising Dietary Representation as a part of my outreach initiative allows me the opportunity to change narratives.

I quickly became aware of disparities within my hometown as a minority in a suburban area. It would be beneficial to increase the level of social and political support for marginalized groups within our government. It is because of this belief that I am focusing my studies on nutrition policy and the public health sector of dietetics. I am learning how to better represent the Black community in the nutrition field as it faces heart diseases, diabetes, and food apartheid. We must tackle food insecurity and ensure proper nutrition for low-income households.

In addition to my Bachelor’s in Science degree, I earned certificates in Ethics and Digital Media Production. I am completing my dietetic internships as I pursue my master’s degree in clinical nutrition.
