"Participating in the World Food Forum 2023 at the FAO and United Nations was an incredible learning journey. I met passionate individuals dedicated to addressing climate change, global food issues, and the range of discussions, from sustainable agriculture to food policy, was enlightening. This experience has fueled my commitment to making a positive impact in the world of food security and sustainability."
