As a child, Pauline Mounjouenpou wondered why her parents always had plenty of food for their nine children during harvest, but went hungry at other times of the year. “My parents were poor, illiterate peasant farmers, and I used to help them on the farm, especially during harvest,” she recalls. Mounjouenpou decided to become a scientist to help ensure that her family would have food all year round. In secondary school, she specialized in sciences, and later majored in food sciences during her first university degree, graduating as a food technology engineer.
