      After school, I spent some time doing other pieces of work but did not have an official job. Fortunately, I applied for a job which was to deal with nematodes and it put food on the table for me for over 7years for me now. I find myself more knowledgeable about nematodes now. I initially never liked it because it involves a lot of work. As experience is the best, I want to be the best nematologist and find some answers to plant breeding, climate change, biodiversity.
