UCEAP Students Experience Olive Harvest in Provence

This past November, UCEAP alumnus Thomas Seale (UCSC, University of St. Andrews, 1977-78) and his family welcomed current UCEAP students Isabelle von Lockner (UCLA), Rosemary Wallace (UCLA), Sophia DeMornay-O'Neal (UCB), and Monica Minix (UCI) to participate in an olive harvest at their family farm in Provence, France.

“No way, an olive farm?!” I shouted at my computer. An email had just popped up, with an invitation to the Seale family’s olive farm in Provence, a green and rocky and lavender filled part of southern France. The invitation was for the harvest weekend, complete with a Thanksgiving dinner. I immediately replied, “Yes, please!” A month later, I arrived at the farm with three other Californians: Monica, Sophia, and Isabelle. As soon as we got to the farm, we went with the family on a tour of the fields. After being in a city for so long, it felt incredible to breathe in the crisp air that whooshed through the rows and rows of olive trees that surrounded us. At the end of the tour, we ended up in a clearing overlooking the valley below us. The setting sun threw bright orange light over the rough mountains in the distance and tinged the foliage in the valley golden. We stared at the scene, and mimicked The Lion King scene where Simba is presented to the world, since both were equally majestic. We could not wait to harvest the olives!"  Continue Reading

Announcing our 2019 Emerging Leader Alumni Awardees

UCEAP cordially invites you to join us at our annual UCEAP Alumni Awards Celebration dinner and program featuring 2019 UCEAP Emerging Leader Award Recipients Justin Hinton and Justin Yee.

Justin Hinton is the Weekend Morning Anchor and Reporter for News 13 in Asheville, North Carolina. He is a 2016 winner of the National Associate of Television Arts and Sciences Southeast Emmy Award for Live News Reporting, and a 2019 Regional Murrow Award winner. He has covered big stories including Hurricanes Maria and Matthew from the Carolinas and Harvey in Southeast Texas, the Emmanuel AME Church shooting, riots in Charlotte following an officer-involved shooting, and historic flooding in Columbia. Born and raised in San Diego, Justin graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in Mass Communications. He is a proud member of the National Associate of Black Journalists. Justin studied abroad with UCEAP in Egypt and Korea, and credits the footage he shot in both locations with helping him get his first job in journalism.

 Justin Yee is an emerging leader in environmental conservation and public lands management. He began his career with the National Park Service in 2014 as a vegetation intern for the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. After graduating from UCLA (Class ’15) with a B.S. in Biology, he served as a biological science technician leading habitat restoration, native plant nursery, volunteer stewardship, youth training, and native seed banking programs in partnership with Los Angeles-based non-profits. Since 2016, he has coordinated the Urban Waters Federal Partnership, a coalition of agencies, NGO’s, academia, and community organizations whose common goal is to revitalize and restore the Los Angeles River. Now working as a management assistant for the Santa Monica Mountains, he coordinates post-Wooley Fire recovery projects.
