Hello Everyone!

Hi! My name is Deena Kanopkin. I am a freshman hoping to double major in chemistry and studio art. I am from Randolph, MA, which is about 30 minutes south of Waltham. In high school, I was involved in Gay-Straight Alliance, Drama Club, ART Club, and Math Team.

I’ve always really liked dancing and jewelry. No, I love jewelry! It is truly a passion of mine, but my biggest passion mine, my reason for living is food. I want to be a food scientist someday, and I love all aspects of food. I love cooking, growing, and learning about food. I want to change the way America eats and thinks. We should all care about what we are consuming and how it is affecting our bodies, the economy, other people, animals, and the environment. I believe in animal and worker’s rights. I only eat hormone-free, antibiotic-free, free range meat. I try to only organic produce and avoid artificial ingredients and preservatives. I never eat at fast food establishments. I am against the use of corn for high fructose corn syrup and as feed stock for animals.

I want change and I am willing to devote my life to it. My goal is to work for an organic food producer and work in food policy. I have never blogged before, but I love reading blogs. I am so excited to jump in and get started.
