I have really enjoyed working with you all and I am sure that we will continue working together. YPARD has built me in many ways starting from the Science Forum 2011 and that acted as a springboard to most of the projects I am doing right now. I am still implementing strategic projects with CCAFS, ACIAR and CSIRO because of that single trip. It is only proper for me to allow YPARD to grow and enhance the capacity of fellow youths attain excellence in their agricultural fields of study.
