I am Abdussalaam Rukayat Oluwadamilola. , a Nigerian. I chose to do my masters in FUNAAB because of its good reputation for academic and research. I enrolled for M.AgSE (food processing and value addition ) in CEADESE specifically because as a centre of excellence, it promised all the training and support needed to carry out successful research in an international learning environment. I was not disappointed, CEADESE provided the necessary financial support and supervision which enabled me to conduct a successful research. I also had the opportunity to attend workshops and seminars which have impacted positively on my career.
