Do I pay the rent or feed my children? Do I heat my home … or do I eat? These are some of the tough choices many families in America face today. Did you know that a staggering 1 in 6 children faces hunger in America? The biggest reason for this is, of course, poverty. Poverty is a painful reality faced by families all across the U.S.—many of them are your neighbors, friends or family. Ironically, many are working families who hold steady jobs (sometimes multiple jobs) but still struggle to make ends meet.

Journey to Science

How did you become interested in science?

My mom is a scientist. She carried out microbiology research as a graduate student, and later as a postdoc, for most of my upbringing. I would go to the lab with her, and I also remember working intensely on school science projects. I liked microbiology, but I ultimately became interested in neuroscience because some of my relatives had conditions that affected the brain.

As such, 2017 is already shaping up to be the Year of Mindful Eating and Drinking.
