I am especially interested in contemporary ethical issues of food, agricultural and life sciences, and particularly policy making in these areas. I have had the privilege of working on behalf of members of professional organisations focusing on food and agriculture such as  the European Society for Agriculture and Food Ethics, the Agriculture, Food and Human Values Society (USA), and the European Federation of Biotechnology.

I particularly enjoy engaging with the issue of global famine, the care for a farming class that is able to keep its head above water in a decent way, and a fair trade system that does not throw up unnecessary barriers for newcomers or small market participants and that promotes good nutrition. Famine continues to be a widespread phenomenon that violates human rights, causing nearly a billion people to suffer from hunger or malnutrition. At the same time, deliberate hunger, abundance, and obesity are prevalent in the Western world. Both issues refer to the social and cultural aspects of food. Scientific and technological developments like genetic modification and functional food also play an increasingly important role; almost every bite that we take is determined by scientific developments.

Sample 1st Paragraph Animal Science and Fisheries

A hardworking student from Nigeria, I will be completing my MBA next year in England and this has prepared me to think about my passion, agriculture and Animal Sciences, in terms of their business potential in Africa. Pleased that both public and private sectors of my country are finally beginning to de-emphasize to some extant oil extraction and to again invest time and resources in agriculture, I seek to combine the strengths of my undergraduate education and previous professional experience in Nigeria with the MBA that I am currently earning, so that I might excel as a graduate student in your particularly distinguished MSC Program in Animal Science and Fisheries at XXXX University.

Building a Culture of Food Safety

I have read several systematic treatments of philosophical and ethical aspects of food (consumption and production). May we eat just anything? Can we do everything with animals, even genetic modification? If not, how can we regulate those processes so that they lead to optimum animal welfare while at the same time producing optimum taste? The production of food also causes environmental pollution – does the fight against hunger have priority over the care of the environment? The care of the environment, animal welfare, and the quality of food should be in a certain harmony, but that is far from granted and hardly easy to achieve. These factors are often in conflict with each other, and a balance will thus need to be searched for.

An extra difficulty is that scientific information is often contradictory, or that it relies on statistical probabilities that are difficult to translate into everyday certitudes. All of these factors deserve attention, but it is the mix that is most important. 

For more than 20 years, I have been assisting applicants to Master's and Doctoral Degree programs in Food Science and Safety from all over the world. I would be honored to draft a model first paragraph for your Statement as well, in Food Science or a related area such as Agriculture or Nutrition.

Expectation vs Reality of Studying Food Science. What is it likely to be a college student with food science major?

I help applicants from all over the world. If you are in a hurry for your statement and you want me to give you prompt attention and priority service, please make your payment as soon as possible since I attend to my clients in the order in which I have received their payments. Often, I am able to finish your statement within 24 hours, no more than 48, after I have the information that I need to work with and your payment has been made. I only do my best, taking the time to reflect on your story as well, usually doing some internet research on your behalf.

Originally from the United States, I have now made my home in Bolivia at 59 years old. After earning my PHD in Religion (1995) from the University of Southern California, I have traveled much of the world, particularly Latin America. Since 2001, I have dedicated the bulk of my efforts to helping others to be accepted to graduate school, university, residency programs, etc.

I appreciate that you put your trust in me because you really like the first model paragraph that I have sent and rest assured that I always do my best work finishing your statement. Please note that I also trust you as well to recommend me to your friends and colleagues when you are very pleased with your statement.

Sample 1st Paragraph Food Science Masters, Indian Applicant

I suppose for many Western students, the choice to study Food Science arises from a theoretical interest in this area or a particular academic bent. I come from a society however, India, in which the need to make advances in this field is much more personal. I do not need to travel far to see those who suffer acutely from science’s real but limited advances in Food Science to date and whom I seek to assist by extending its application to the direct improvement of their lives.

I am convinced that my academic record, research experience and genuine passion for this specialty equip me both to add value to the program and ultimately to assist in successful projects that will change many lives.
