Alexis Fujii
University of California Davis, Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems – California

Alexis Fujii is in her third year at University of California, Davis majoring in Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems. Her dream is to run and own an organic, sustainable farm that provides fresh products to a local community. She would like to be a part of the organic movement in order to improve the environment, global health, and food system.

Alexis is very excited to continue her studies at an amazing agricultural university and learn everything she'll need to know in order to have a successful future. Her future career goals include managing an organic farm and café, ideally on a small-scale organic farm in California or one of the Pacific Northwest states. Alexis aspires to use her future land not only for production, but also for experimentation with various organic and sustainable techniques.

Congratulations Alexis!
