Scholar: Elizabeth Muthoni Scholar: Evelia Quiroz

Eunice grew up on her parent’s small farm in Runyaga village in Tanzania. They grow beans, corn, and coffee.

Eunice decided to study agriculture because of the poverty and lack of education and resources she saw in her community. “After getting my degree I’m planning to go back and work with different villages to teach them how to keep livestock and how to grow crops.” Eunice dreams of owning a large farming company that will offer agriculture classes, as well as combat unemployment in Tanzania.
