Amelia’s journey with SCLT began in 2016, when their mother and step-father, Margarita and Teodulio, started farming with SCLT where it became their livelihood. In 2018, Amelia participated in SCLT’s Youth Staff Program where they personally experienced the value of farm-to-table agriculture and living off the land. In 2023, they graduated from the University of Rhode Island with a degree in Supply Chain Management and Logistics. Having a history in advocacy and activism, as well as a love for food service, Amelia wanted their focus to be on work that would benefit the Earth, give back to their hometown of South Providence, and feed their community.
Amelia loves sketching, rollerskating, yoga, guinea pigs, sugar snap peas and new experiences.
