I have just finished my undergraduate studies at Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology, J.K.U.A.T where I have been pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Food Science and Nutrition. At the moment I am at home assisting my uncle in running his business. However, I have applied for attachment and internship positions in various organizations so that I can get an opportunity to gain some practical experience especially in the field of nutrition, food security and agriculture. Most of the organizations that I have applied to have not yet responded but I am very hopeful and optimistic that I will get an opportunity to integrate the theory that I have learned with practical activities in the field. I am also planning to pursue a diploma in Project management next year on part-time basis and an Msc degree either in Applied human nutrition or an Msc in foods, nutrition and dietectics.
