TIE Fellow 2017-2018: Tessa Salzman

Tessa Salzman, Master of Science in Agriculture, Food & Environment; Master of Arts in Urban & Environmental Policy and Planning

I am a dual degree masters student in the Urban & Environmental Policy & Planning program and the Agricultural, Food & Environment program at the Friedman School. I am interested in increasing collaboration across federal agencies to coordinate public efforts towards sustainability, social justice and health. Professionally, I aspire to improve labor conditions for all farmworkers in the US. Outside of school, I love bike touring, acroyoga, live music, cooking, and baking vegan creations. I am passionate about learning Spanish because of the possibilities it presents to communicate and connect with millions of people around the world.
