“I grew up at a farm, but when I was in high school, my main interest was actually to study Medicine. Then we went for a school trip at Zambeef; and that changed my whole perception of agriculture. That’s when I decided to put more effort in knowing more about farming, getting involved in farming during the holidays and further obtain a BSc in Agriculture.” – Maanda Elizabeth Sianga aka The Young Farmer Maanda
