Hello! My name is Reem Bou-Nacklie, I am currently a Master’s student, studying Nutrition and Food Science, at the University of Vermont. I was born in Lebanon, but immigrated to Vermont when I was one year old, and have been living here ever since. Coming to the U.S has given me so much and it is often very interesting to see the differences in culture between my own household and those who surround me. It is my goal to be able to learn as much as I can from other people and their cultures and to integrate this into my lifework of increasing food access and food sovereignty on a local and national level. I look forward to meeting you all!
