Natalie interviewed to become a delegate after participating in the program on campus during the 2022-2023 school year, and was selected to attend the meeting in October 2023 in Des Moines, Iowa, fully funded by Michigan State University, Michigan 4-H, and the World Food Prize Foundation, which covers all program expenses for Natalie and her teacher.

“Another student who participated in our program was selected to interview for the opportunity to participate in in the Global Youth Institute,” Dr. Foster said. “While not selected as a delegate this time, it’s a great honor to be recognized at this level.”
