“...if I really reflect on how I, a Latina from Las Vegas, was able to become a scientist at an elite university, it wasn’t my own curiosity. It was the influence of a blackjack dealer who also happens to be my mother. ”—Anjelica L. Gonzalez, Ph.D, assistant professor of biomedical engineering at Yale
Meet an Organizer
Plovgh Pickup Point: The New School Campus, West Village
1. Could you describe a formative experience in your life that shaped your views of farms and food?
My view on farms and food has to really be explained as a gradual learning process that is constantly growing: courses I have taken at the New School dealing with sustainability, documentaries I have seen such as Food Inc. In general, I have become increasingly aware of what I eat, making small adjustments at a time, for instance only eating organic, free-range chicken.
2. What motivated you to start a Plovgh Pickup Point in your neighborhood?
I received an email from my advisor, a Health Educator at The New School. She forwarded an email sent to a food professor. I emailed Plovgh and heard a response from Mallory. Soon after we met and within a semester’s time we organized a Plovgh pick-up at the University. Within the University’s sustainable commitments, connecting to local produce is an important initiative worth implementing. Plovgh is an organization that will help students, staff, and faculty be able to pick up produce from local farms for extremely affordable prices. The first pick-up was very successful.
3. How does being a Plovgh Organizer relate to your work and interests?
Being a Plovgh Organizer relates to almost everything I do at the university and in my own personal life. At the university I work with the Office of Sustainable Facilities and Management as the President of Sustainable Cities, a graduate student organization. Members of our group are Green Fund recipients working on an energy competition within one of the residence halls. I am a team member of the Solar Decathlon at Milano, a resident advisor of the Green Floor, a compost advocate, and a Health Promotion Specialist focusing on the relationship between well-being and environmental sustainability.

Today, my friends are on the verge of completing their UCAS applications to apply to UK universities after our A-Levels. There were a bunch of boring forms to fill out & copies of past exam results, but the thing that interested me the most was the PERSONAL STATEMENT that they each had to write - in no more than 4,000 characters.
According to them, it’s basically an essay about yourself that stems anything & everything about yourself: from reasons to why you aim of enrolling in the UK to basic hobbies and interests - “cause the heads there would like to know about you”.
My friends wrote about how Law was their number one passion (well, they ARE going to enroll in Law!). They wrote about how they liked English football. And the jobs they had before they entered college. Quotes from famous people (John Lennon) or from people closest & dearest (“my grandmother”). And even their interests, such as debating.
Got me thinking if I were to write a personal statement IF I were to apply to the UK. That would be so exciting just to write for the fun of it! Haha. I may have never gotten a job in my life & my results suck balls, but I’ve probs have/had a lot of hobbies/interests in my life that I’m pretty proud of, such as:
- BALLET - 8 years & 2 gold medals
- SINGING - 3rd prize in a singing competition
- STORY-TELLING - 3rd place in an inter-school competition & various other wins in school
- MODELLING - few catalogs
- ACTING - got a role in a X’mas play once which aired on TV2, & was also in a few commercials
- CHEERLEADING - did it for a year
- PSYCHOLOGY & THE HUMAN MIND - I’ve even unintentionally mindfuck myself a few times
- CREATING ABSTRACT ART - can’t draw faces or buildings, just abstract
- PLAYING DJ - <3 drum & bass, dubstep, techno, trance, [hybrid genres] electro/screamo
- FASHION DESIGN - unfortunately, sewing is not my forte so my designs have always remained drawings
- JEWELRY MAKING - most particularly weaving bracelets :)
- ICE SKATING
- INTERIOR RE-DESIGN - well, I redesign small things like my drawers, shelves & stationary.
- MUSIC REVIEW
- DEBATING - proud with my double ‘semi-finalist’ title twice in a row :)
- CRIMINOLOGY - and basically, anything to do with the minds & lives of serial killers & mass murderers
- ABLE TO RECITE THE ENTIRE LIFE STORY OF THE 15TH/16TH CENTURY SCOTTISH CANNIBAL, SAWNEY BEAN - c’mon, that’s got to be quite an achievement!
That’s about all I can think of right now. I’ve always wanted to do more, like learn to play an instrument or another sport or anything relating to graphics design. Maybe even be a master of something for a change, instead of a Jack of many trades.
Plus, I seem to always quote Nosferatu or my fave songs right now. I’m not in the habit of quoting famous people with a billion Nobel Prizes or such. :/
Ah, when the time comes. :D
*I admit, it’s just a few rhyming couplets. Nothing so spectacular. LOL
