This is the fifth post in our new series “I am Agriculture”, that showcases the many careers available to young people in agriculture. Today’s post comes from Nawsheen Hosenally, who works as a freelance social media consultant specialised in agriculture issues, and has created an online TV station for agribusiness entrepreneurs.
My childhood dream was to be a veterinarian because I love animals. But as I was growing up, I realised that it was not for me since I was scared of blood and everything related to hospitals and doctors. At secondary school, I had no idea what I wanted to be. I chose to study science because I liked biology a bit more than the other subjects, but there was nothing more than this. I was never among the first ones in my class and did not really do anything exceptional to make me stand out from the crowd. I was just the average student with average grades. But little did I know that it was all about to change some years later.
