LFS has helped me understand scientific mechanisms and processes in a tangible way, but also helped me to see what it means to be a part of my global and local food system.
LFS is full of inspiration. It’s around every corner and impossible to miss.
I am more than a number: my learning is supported by the UBC community and my Faculty.
I’m so glad I’m here, because I’ve felt a strong sense of belonging since day one.
An exchange program in my fourth year introduced me to entomophagy, and I continued to travel and study how local cultures produce and consume insects.
The flexibility of the GRS program gave me the time to find my focus, and ultimately connect with community through land and food.
My most valuable experience from university was just going through all these things with a group of people who I know will be there with me in the future.
The confidence that I gained from taking leaps while in university helped me to continue doing so when I entered the real world.
This Faculty has opened up my perspectives of what I can accomplish in my career after UBC.
