Maame Ekua Tawiah Croffie, Agri-Food and Land Use, from Ghana
"My time at Queens has helped me to acquire a lot of networks and I have learned a lot from meeting different cultures. It has made me look at people differently in understanding how culture shape us. I am more confident now to meet people and share ideas which I previously could not do."
