Master’s Level, National Winner

Aimee Uyehara of University of Hawaii at Manoa

“I believe all of us in agriculture have a responsibility to facilitate diversity through our attitudes toward each other. Through mutual respect, curiosity, and the enjoyment of diversity, we can learn much about ourselves as we seek ways to improve agriculture. We must buy into the idea of diversity just as much as the institution.”
