高二阅读理解When she was 18 Ahmad had her future figured

发布时间:  浏览: 次  作者:爱英语吧

When she was 18,Ahmad had her future figured out,“I was going to study biology in college,I would fall in love while I was there,and then I was going to medical school.” In reality,“nothing worked according to my plan,” Ahmad, now 26,says with a laugh, “Except I did fall in love, but it wasn’t with a person. It was with an idea."

That idea was feeding the hungry by redistributing (再分配)wasted food. Ahmad is the founder and CEO of Copia. Companies use the Copia app to report when they have leftover food,what kind,and how much. When recipients (接受者)such as shelters,soup kitchens, and agencies first register with Copia, they state how many people they need to feed,on what days,and what kind of food they’ll take.

How did Ahmad create Copia? As a senior at UC Berkeley, she was walking near campus one day when she saw a young man begging for food. She invited him to sit down for a meal. He told her his name was John and he had recently returned from Iraq, but he hadn’t eaten for three days. Ahmad had an aha moment then. While homeless people like John were starving,across the street the university dining halls were throwing away still-eatable food. She did some research and then started a student group that recovered food from campus and distributed it to local nonprofits.

After graduation, Ahmad worked with software developers to run Copia. It operates in 40 cities and has served over 700,000 people. Despite her busy schedule, Ahmad tries to do one food pickup a week. “When you get to the shelter,” she says, “someone opens the door, sees all the food,and says,‘If you hadn' t come, 270 people wouldn' t have eaten.' And ‘This is why I do what I do.'"

21. Ahmad founded Copia to_.

A. earn enough money for medical school

B. develop her interest in biology learning

C. raise people’s awareness of saving food

D. match recovered food with those in need

22. What brought Ahmad that aha moment?
