Biography:

Leah Cherop earned her first degree in Fisheries Science at Moi University in 1997. She then returned to Moi University, with Aquaculture CRSP (ACRSP) funding, to earn her Masters in Philosophy in Fisheries and Aquatic Science. Leah said that her graduate work with ACRSP gave her "confidence to transfer knowledge to others". The opportunity improved her research skills and eventually enabled her to publish her graduate results, which earned her a promotion to Lecturer at the University of Eldoret. She said "It is so fulfilling training fish farmers and students and thereafter seeing them implement what they have learned." Leah is from a rural area and became interested in aquaculture because these technologies can be easily transferred to lay people, while providing high quality food; partially in part of her upbringing, Leah most enjoys "being part and parcel of the people offering viable solutions to food production in rural areas."
