As I reflect on my year as an Agricultural intern in Arava desert in Israel, I am overwhelmed by gratitude for the knowledge and expertise I attained. It was a journey that transcended my experience in agriculture. This unique journey was filled with appreciation, skills, friendships, and a shift that has reshaped my life.
Stepping into the realm of irrigation and agriculture experts after earning a BSc in Biosystems Engineering from the University of Nairobi was a golden opportunity. Landing at Ben Gurion International airport, the vibrant first-world atmosphere was a stark contrast to my home country, and my excitement for the journey ahead deepened.
