Johns Hopkins University

Raychel E. Santo
Raychel is a sophomore studying public health and global environmental change & sustainability at Johns Hopkins University. Originally from Dayton, Ohio, her passion for everything “green” began with her discovery of the sustainable food movement. As she voraciously read and watched every food and nutrition-related piece she could get her hands on, she stumbled into a passion that would fill her hunger for knowledge, justice, and purpose. A co-founder of Real Food Hopkins, she also works as a research assistant at the Center for a Livable Future. This summer, she is traveling to France to work on an organic farm and research GMO labeling.

How can you describe a weekend of student leaders from across the U.S. with an intense passion to change the world? The Orientation was a phenomenal experience to meet and build connections that I'm sure will last a lifetime.
