What's one thing you love about Portland Community College? Portland Community College has done an outstanding job supporting students like myself who want to get involved and make a difference.
What are your ambitions post-graduation? I plan on transferring to another school, continuing my education and starting another FRN chapter!
What other organization(s) are you involved in? Food Recovery Network is the only organization I am a part of as of now.
