Livie Nute is from Crested Butte, Colorado and is a recent Global Public Health graduate from the University of Virginia (UVA). At UVA, Livie worked as a Food Policy Intern for the Office of Sustainability. She also served as a student coordinator for a Global Studies partnership program with indigenous communities, and as an intern for a NGO in Marrakech, where she assisted in anti-hunger and community organizing efforts through rural Morocco. Livie is passionate about intersections between sustainability, food justice, and food sovereignty. This summer, Livie hopes to learn more about how to leverage policy for localized solutions to malnutrition, and how to be a more effective leader and facilitator of this process. One aspect of the ZHI program that I am very excited about is participating in a cohort of peers who are also deeply invested in anti-hunger work. Livie looks forward to exchanging different perspectives and internship experiences, and seeing where host organizations' efforts intersect.
