Shakirah Nakasagga

I joined Makerere University in 2014 as a private student seeking to further my education without financial assurance. I got a scholarship on the third day of school with AGRA. Studying isn’t a straight path, I faced challenges but I had a mentor, father, lecturer and a friend in Dr. Richard Edema. Throughout my study at Makerere, Dr. Edema supported me, I must commend his program (MaRCCI) because it not only builds future scientists but also fighters, people with a vision, mission on how to accomplish specified goals in the field of crop improvement.

Head, Food and Agriculture Standards Division, Uganda National Bureau of Standards. Studying at CAES added value to me as a student. I’d like to think I have the best of worlds-an open and analytical mind of a professional Food Scientist. I believe CAES is the place where the two worlds were nurtured!

Crop and Weed Ecologist with a PhD from Wageningen University in the Netherlands. When I made the decision to study at the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, I didn’t realize I was making a choice that would change my life forever. I am so much more confident in my ability to attract and connect with scientists all over the world. CAES you are amazing!
