Can you share a favorite FRN memory? I am amazed by the amount of students who want to make a difference.

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. However, the greater Portland area is full of organizations trying to make a difference. As I continue my education and outreach I hope to collaborate with as many as possible.
