Lakeisha Perkins

Student at Iowa State University majoring in Agriculture & Society
I am currently pursuing my Bachelors of Science in Agriculture and Society at Iowa State University. I am now in my fourth and final year of college. I am currently looking into getting a Masters in Public Health Administration because I am interested in a career working to reduce poverty, hunger and malnutrition, especially in rural areas and developing countries. I would love to do sociological research into the causes of poverty in rural areas. I believe that the opinions, wants, and needs of the rural community are often overlooked due to the urban bias that many politicians hold and believe that these issues deserve more attention as the rural community is an essential part of America.
