Hello, my name is Cecilia Saavedra. I received an Associate’s degree in Horticulture, Land Systems, and Management- Small Market Farming in February 2017 from Metropolitan Community College. Currently, I am working towards a Bachelor’s degree in IT Innovation with a minor in Chicano Studies from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. I plan to finish my degree in December 2019. ** crossing my fingers**
After graduation, I plan to create apps and have a chance to open my own organic farm with my boyfriend. One of my goals is to grow organic fruits and vegetables at an affordable price and make sure low-income individuals in our community will have the same opportunity to eat healthily and organically. I enjoy farming, teaching individuals how to garden, cooking, photography, volunteering, and traveling.
I view my education as a patchwork quilt of academic training and practical experience that grows with my every accomplishment. These, collectively, are a representation of who I am as a student, employee, and life-long learner. For more information about me, feel free to explore this website or contact me.
