For souls nobly born, valour does not await the passing of years.” This quote from the French writer Pierre Corneille is entirely in line with Pamela Afokpe’s professional career. Just 27 years old, Pamela Afokpe works for East-West Seed International in Ghana, Nigeria and since 2017 has opened and manages the East-West Seed International (EWS) research station in Benin. East-West Seed International is a seed company with its headquarters in Bangkok, Thailand, which invests in the research, development and commercialisation of horticultural varieties with an approach centred on small producers around the world.
The One Planet Fellowship is an excellent opportunity for me to strengthen my personal and scientific capacities, and also a window for me to pass on my achievements as a laureate to future generations of researchers through mentoring, says Sarr.
