JENNIFER HYOJE-RYU KENTY, SOUTH KOREA
Farmer | Alexander Farm
When Jennifer Kenty isn't working in a stem cell lab at Harvard searching for a cure for diabetes, she is tending vegetables as organic farmer with her husband George at Alexander Farm in Winchendon.
Jenny became a US citizen in 2009. "That day, everyone was so proud and happy. But I didn't feel like I was left out before."
After the election of Donald Trump however she says it feels strange to be a Korean in the United States - a feeling she says is common with many minorities.
"When I'm out on the farm I feel very grounded. I love how everything is so collaborative. I strive to grow something of real quality for people."
