I'm pleased to introduce you to Amy Xue, Gratitude Gourmet's new Business Development Intern. Amy is a senior at Stanford University pursuing a B.A. in International Relations and M.A. in Sociology. She discovered Gratitude Gourmet when looking for a start-up to do an internship with for her Entrepreneurship class. Gratitude Gourmet immediately sparked her interest because she loves good food, and loves it even more when it's also healthy and sustainable!
Though her best friend in high school was vegetarian (simply because she didn't like the taste of meat), Amy did not start learning about the environmental impact of food until taking Introduction to Earth Systems and being exposed to the many talks and film screenings at Stanford on food and sustainability. She has since been trying to cut her consumption of meat, particularly beef, and taking other steps to "green" her life. This has been relatively easy at the Stanford dining halls, which do a fairly good job of providing organic, locally grown, vegetarian and vegan offerings. Amy is currently taking a Nutrition class and learning even more about the importance and rewards of being intentional with eating. Besides sustainability, Amy is interested in many interrelated global issues, including education, health, poverty and inequality. She also loves travel, learning about different cultures and regions of the world, and trying new foods! Here is Amy's LinkedIn profile. Welcome Amy!
