Currently, I am a graduating senior at Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU). I will be graduating this April with a degree in Food Science and Agribusiness, Summa Cum Laude and headed to graduate school for a Masters in Agricultural Economics.
Since finishing the BFFB program, I’ve completed my Bachelors degree from NC A&T State University and started a career in Master Data Management at a Grocer Headquarters.
Since finishing the BFFB program in November, I have thrived as a budding professional in the food and beverage industry. I have been offered various internships and a couple of full-time positions from companies in the consumer-packaged goods industry. I utilized the knowledge and skills that I learned in the fellowship program to secure these roles. I hope to take one after graduating this spring.
