When Alex finds a moment of spare time, she loves to read, drink coffee, learn languages, try new foods and see new places.

Jillian enjoys meeting new people and trying new foods. Though she's not the best cook, she feels very accomplished when she successfully makes a cool new recipe. Most recently, Jillian made vegan crabcakes with artichoke meat. Mmmm. Since being at Cornell, Jillian's favorite class has been Indigenous Food Systems which she took her first semester. It intrigued Jillian because it shed light on how historical and present day events can cause a person to be food insecure and highlighted how food insecurity impacts a culture.
