Ifeoma Edeh

I am ambitious, and passionate about soil conservation.

When I was quite young, at the back of our compound my grandma had a medium-sized farm where she grew vegetables for sale to make a living. One night, it rained so heavily, and the farm was eroded, washing away and destroying must of the vegetables. I became interested in Science from that point especially in the area of soil conservation. This led me to study Soil Science at my undergraduate level. Ever since then my passion for conserving soil resources has grown and I have continued with it.
