"The Borlaug Global Rust Initiative believes in training young scientists and helping them develop professional careers. During my trip, I was excited to see a lot of young Ethiopian scientists and seeds people.Their efforts would make my father proud. My Dad believed in equal opportunities for both women and men. My parents insisted that my brother and I receive a good education. And all of my father’s grandchildren (five girls and one boy) are well educated. My father used to say: “Education is something nobody can take away from you.” He also believed that about scientific training."
