More youths join The Zone

What is it like to work as a marine biologist? What does a marine biologist do on a daily basis? What are the opportunities for someone interested in the underwater world to get a job in this sphere? What are the necessary qualifications? What if one is fascinated by the underwater world but is not a wild fan of diving in the deep blue?

These and many other questions related to the profession of a marine biologist will be answered by Alan Deidun tomorrow in an interview with him for The Zone.

After visiting Health Awareness Day organised by members of the Malta Health Students’ Organisation last month in Sliema, The Zone decided to shed more light on the new course in applied food and nutritional sciences offered for the first time this year by the University of Malta.

Specifically, The Zone scouted one of the course’s students for an interview to gain insight into the course objectives and the professional paths one can take once the course is completed.

Tatiana Mogileva Grixti is only a first year student in the BSc.course in Applied Food and Nutritional Sciences but she has already realised the unexplored (and still unoccupied) professional niche her course is leading her to.

Learn more from her interview tomorrow about the professional paths one can take after completing this course, and the great amount of information there is to learn about food, nutrition, and genetics.

Be heard and share your own experiences with others. Tell them about your career choice, what it takes to get where you are, the ups and downs you experience, and offer advice to those who are still uncertain about what they want to do in the future.

To be interviewed for The Zone, send an e-mail with a brief description of your career, talent, or a social issue you would like to discuss.

Alternatively, you can send your own video. Send a low-resolution version of your file to
