Rotary eClub Video – August 5, 2020 –– How Rotary Exchange Impacted my Career with Ethan Neal
My name is Ethan Neal. I come from a long line of Iowans, but was lucky enough to move to Northfield, Minnesota when I was six years old.

Being from Northfield, Rotary Youth Exchange had always been on my mind. I chose to do a GAP year and went down to Sucre, Bolivia.

After my year, I went to the University of Minnesota where I studied cultural anthropology and food systems.

Throughout my time at University, I was working my way up through Pillsbury United Communities where I have worked for over nine years.

I now have the privileged to manage our food system which includes two food shelves, two free community meals programs, five outdoor farms, and one indoor hydroponic farm.

I truly believe that my exchange year had a direct impact on my direction in life, from my choice in major to my choice in career path.
