Story of Impact

Bella Pulido

Growing up, Bella Pulido always saw herself as an ag person, but she learned “ag” looks different for everyone. She saw an opportunity to create a new space for Agricultural Sciences students who come from backgrounds that may look different from their cohorts’. Valuing diverse voices and contributions from the broader ag community are a crucial element to our students’ success and advancing the animal science industry.
