    rather than simply providing the solution. By involving the community

    throughout the design process, you can help equip people to innovate

Future

As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More
