ICRISAT Happenings Newsletter August 2017

Figure: Kayla Zhu, 17 years, Grade 12, North Farmington High School, Michigan, USA

 

Committed to improving food and nutrition security, Kayla Zhu and Alyssa Swehla, were selected by the World Food Prize Foundation for the Borlaug-Ruan International internship. They have spent the last two months at ICRISAT and the World Vegetable Center in India working within research teams to gain firsthand experience of how science can change lives.

 

“I am inspired by the Sustainable Development Goals. As young people it is our responsibility to get involved in the issues we care about.”

 

Internee at Markets, Institutions, Nutrition and Diversity (MIND) theme, ICRISAT

 

During my internship at ICRISAT, I have been working on a project to understand the dietary diversity of the tribal populations in the tribal district of Adilabad in Telangana state, with the aim of improving nutrition among vulnerable groups. I am interested in social sciences, political sciences and economics. And food security is an interdisciplinary science. Being at ICRISAT has helped me to see how science can impact people’s lives.
