Tommey Jodie, Earth Grant Intern

Tommey is a senior dual majoring in Nutrition and Food Systems & Food Studies. Her passions and interests, such as food sovereignty, the legitimization of Indigenous knowledge systems, and the visibility of Native communities, are driven by her lived experiences as a Diné woman and her upbringing in a traditional household in the outskirts of the Navajo Nation in Winslow, AZ.

Her values have also driven her past work as an intern in The Future of Food and Social Justice: A Youth Storytelling Project, conducted by the Center for Regional Food Studies, and as a scholar in Uplift Climate's Summer Organizing Fellowship. 

Tommey aspires to bring her experiential learnings with her in the future to further her education in public health and collaborate with Indigenous communities to enhance connections with food and the land.
