Caroliena Cabada


I’m a writer currently based in Ames, Iowa earning an MFA in Creative Writing and Environment from Iowa State University. Prior to pursuing the MFA, I worked in nonprofit communications and earned a BA in Chemistry from New York University. I started going vegetarian in 2012 and have been meat-free since 2013. My particular food-related interests are plant-based recipes, farmworker rights, sustainable agriculture, and food customs.
