This is the eighth post in our new series “I am Agriculture”, that showcases the many careers available to young people in agriculture. Today’s post comes from Caroline Manus, who is a Food Scientist with the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN).
Having been brought up by a nutrition-aware mother, I was always very conscious of the importance of good nutrition. My mother was an inspiration. She was passionate about nutrition and the foods we eat. She was instrumental in my desire to study nutrition. I don’t think as a child I knew exactly what I wanted to do later in life. But I always knew I wanted to marry a hard science which is closely linked to patients.
