I am in Arusha, Tanzania, about to finish my internship about the role of small-scale farmers in developing a nutritionally adequate cost-optimized diet in the rural areas of Arusha region.

Things go slow, very slow, and sometimes it’s extremely frustrating being here and trying to get something accomplished in an efficient way.

Thankfully my girlfriend is here, which is truly helpful in order to not become unmotivated and lonely all the time.

By the end of the week, my family is coming to visit and we’ ll be going on a safari to the Serengeti and Ngorongoro. I am very excited.

Even though the internship hasn’t been that successful as I thought before arriving, it helped me a lot to organize my mind and find out what I truly want to do in the future.

I only have 5 months left before graduating and I ‘ll do my best to get into the MSc of Sport and Exercise Nutrition at Westminster University in London. This will allow me to combine my biggest passions and interests in life being sports, nutrition and cooking.
The vision? Become personal chef for high-performance athletes.
