Nicole is a freshman at Pitzer College in Claremont, CA. FRN and the ROC position appeals to Nicole because it allows her to build on her interests in alleviating food insecurity across communities. She first became involved in her local food justice movement during high school when she coordinated stakeholders in the development of a community garden and fruit tree guild at an affordable housing complex in her community. When not in class or at work, she enjoys running, riding her bike along the Atlanta BeltLine, browsing the stalls of farmers’ markets, community gardening, cooking Italian food, and hiking. Upon graduation, she is interested in starting a career in community development and neighborhood revitalization.
