As part of our agriculture program, Meds & Food for Kids provides opportunities for young graduates in Haiti to gain tangible experience in the agronomy field. For the next few months, our intern Guiler Israel will be learning about our research method, farmer training, peanut purchases, and more. We are grateful to have him as part of the team!
Meet Guiler Israel:
What did you study, and what school did you go to?
I studied agronomy at the Henry Christop Campus of the State University of Haiti in Limonade. I graduated in 2021.
Why did you choose Agronomy as a career choice?
I come from a rural family where agriculture was my parents' only source of income to support the family. Thus, I grew up with a strong passion for agriculture. Given the difficulties that Haitian agriculture faces day by day, I chose to pursue my career in agronomy to contribute to the revival of Haitian agriculture. Then, to contribute, in my possible way, to the mitigation of global warming which is a serious problem throughout the world.
Why did you choose MFK for your internship?
After finishing my university studies in 2021, I wanted to find an institution to do an internship. After having gathered some information about MFK, both on the internet and by word of mouth, I realized that MFK was the ideal place to start my professional career. That's why I chose the MFK to do this internship.
