Q&A with Andriana:
What interests you about working with the Non-GMO Project- what about this opportunity caught your attention?
I have always believed that nourishing food has the power to connect us to each other and to the earth, and thus was immediately drawn to the Project’s mission. The Project has been able to empower millions of people, and it was thrilling to imagine the contributions I could make to such a huge movement.
How do you think your prior experience will help you in working with the Non-GMO project?
I realized during college that through healing the planet we can come to heal ourselves, and that realization led to me to a variety of projects, student jobs and internships. I spearheaded community outreach and digital engagement at CU’s Environmental Center and was a marketing intern at Eco-Cycle, a nonprofit that empowers communities to take on zero waste. I am deeply grateful for both of those experiences, which helped shape and hone the skills I am so excited to bring to the Project.
What is important to you about the work you will be doing with the Project?
To me, it’s connecting with the people on the front lines of this movement. I’m here to empower people to make informed choices and assert their right to a transparent food system.
