Hello! My name is Anastasia Mills and I am a junior from Benton, Arkansas. I chose to study Food Science because I've loved science since I was little, but in more recent years I really found my heart in chemistry. Food Science is a wide field with so many options. I plan to pursue a graduate degree after graduating, and go on to possibly work in research or product development. I want to help create food products to help create food products to help feed a growing world population.
I am an ambassador for food science and Bumpers College because I want to spread the word about the amazing opportunities and career paths available to our students. I have studied abroad in Belgium and Austria through Bumpers College, and also France in summer 2018. I am also beginning research in the fall comparing aromatic rices from different regions.
On campus, I am involved in the Food Science club. I am also a member of Sigma Phi Lambda, a Christian sorority on campus, and the Fayettetones, a contemporary a cappella group. I am also an Honors College Ambassador and I enjoy volunteering with Razorback Food Recovery. Fayetteville is a great place to live and I really enjoy being a part of the close-knit Bumpers College!
