Growing up in Columbus Junction, Natalina Sents had a passion for agriculture. Although she did not grow up on a farm, she could often be found at the neighbor’s where she would assist with the chores of their lamb operation.
A soon to be junior at Iowa State University, Natalina is pursuing a degree in Agricultural Business with a double minor in Agronomy and Entrepreneurship. She keeps very busy during the academic year serving as an officer and active member of a variety of on-campus organizations including: the Student Federation for Agriculture, NAMA, the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences Council, the Agricultural Business Club, the ISU Corn Growers Club, and the Student Advisory Team. When Natalina is not busy with on-campus activities she enjoys spending time with family and friends and experimenting with photography.

Someday, Natalina hopes to own her own farm and invite urban consumers so they too can have the opportunity to experience agriculture first hand, much like the opportunity her neighbors provided her with as a young girl. Upon graduation, Natalina plans to seek a career in ag marketing and communications. Being able to connect with consumers will help her persue her dreams of educating consumers on the importance of agriculture.
This summer, Natalina will work as the Market Development Intern at Iowa Corn. “I was immediately impressed with the staff at Iowa Corn and their genuine passion for agriculture
,” said Sents. Natalina was excited to accept her offer for this position as she felt she could easily align with Iowa Corn’s values. She also likes how every day in the office (or in the field) is different.
Natalina is looking forward to this summer and learning how corn’s various uses affect the world. She is also enthused to meet others that share her passion for agriculture and commit themselves to advocating for the industry.
