Javeria Hashmi received a Warwick Taught Masters Scholarship for MSc Food Security. She says:
"I am ardent about the eradication of hunger and food wastage. The Warwick Taught Masters Programme scholarship enabled me to pursue an MSc in Food Security and has empowered me with specialised knowledge of trade and policy along with crop science, food and nutrition. A full-time mother myself, I hope to make a difference."
