On the Farm: My Internship at Hopkins Southdowns

I am originally from El Paso, Texas, but relocated to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, just before I started high school. Initially I attended JWU North Miami for my A.S. in Culinary Arts. I decided to transfer to Providence for my bachelor’s degree in Food Service Management. Once in Providence, my goals shifted from wanting to work in hotels to looking to open a small business that locally sources food and materials. I am currently focusing on my degree and working at the farm six to seven days a week.
