We are absolutely delighted to introduce Zomppa’s first Digital Media and Research Intern! We were blown away by Madelyn’s passion and experience, and are looking forward to her contributions to the team. In addition to her behind-the-scenes work, keep an eye out for her upcoming column. Welcome, Madelyn!
Springing from a background in sexuality and gender, Madelyn uses an intersectional eco-feminist lens to interpret the world around her. As a passionate – newly vegan, amateur activist – photographer, she hopes to add an interesting perspective to Zomppa’s dialogue on food thought, policy and fun as its first intern. While she isn’t bouncing between classes on her college campus, she is found snuggling up to a good book with her cats or planning a new garden project.
You can find Madelyn’s photos and contributions at Rachel in Veganland and The Carrboro Citizen.

With a flair for spontaneity, pizzazz, creative excellence and her own unique sense of aesthetic grace and perspective, we have our very dear friend, Belinda (or B, to some of us). Although an incredibly accomplished professional and career woman, B’s down-to-earth approach and demeanor transcends all scenarios, communities and people. She manifests, in her day-to-day, the essence of the word “Zomppa” as demonstrated by her extraordinary commitment to creating sustainable and positive change for us and future generations to come. She’s asked for a dog every year since she was five. Check out Belinda’s work on global education research and coaching: www.hummingbirdrcc.com or more about her portfolio www.belindachiu.com.
