Meet former UBB intern, Kaitlyn Alanis
Raised in the central valley of California, Kaitlyn Alanis, the UBB summer 2016 communications intern, regards herself as very fortunate to have grown up in an area enriched with agriculture. While she was not born into a family with an agricultural background, she had opportunities to become involved in 4-H and FFA. It was these two organizations that ignited her passion for not just the agricultural industry, transparent communication and genuine leadership.
“While I grew up with a cotton field behind my home and dairies just down the street, I had not the slightest idea that it was that very cotton and those very cows that made the clothes on our backs and the milk in our ice cream,” said explains, “If it were not for the leaders and communicators in the agricultural community of my hometown, I shudder at the thought that I may have been one who did not know where my food came from. It was from this very realization that I knew I was going to major in an agricultural field.”
At the time of her internship, Kaitlyn was a junior studying agricultural communications and journalism at Kansas State University. During her internship Kaitlyn applied the skills and knowledge she has gained at K-State to her work writing feature stories for the Braford News magazine and developing marketing materials for the UBB. Check out some of Kaitlyn's work in print in the summer issue of the Braford News.
