Julie Emeanuwa is beginning her junior year at the University of New Mexico where she is studying to become a doctor because, as she says, “Born and raised in this state, I aware of the shortage of physicians and healthcare providers, particularly in the rural areas.” Julie’s father is a farmer and she says “Growing up as a famer has given me the experience that many of my peers do not know.  I appreciate the food I eat because I know where it is grown and how much work is put in to grow it.”
