Kenya’s first time being introduced to Fair Trade USA was at 2019 AASHE conference where she presented her partnered undergrad research. She is a proud alumni from Missouri State University who studied in Biology and minored in sustainability. Kenya’s passion for sustainability stems from her early childhood where her parents were advocates themselves within the green movement. Kenya is outgoing, motivated, and ready to promote change within communities, universities, and global society. Her favorite motivation is her family mantra: “We will protect only what we love, We will love only what we understand, We will understand only what we are taught”.
