Sigrid Kramer did her undergraduate in Nutrition and Dietetics and obtained a Master’s Degree in Global Health in August 2020. During her undergraduate, she did the minor Global Awareness, which gave her the opportunity to participate in a community project focused on social and economic development in South Africa. Here is where she first learned about the importance of nutrition within the first 1,000 days of life and the lifelong consequences of stunting. Since then, her interest grew in the role of nutrition in maternal and child health. Therefore, she did her undergraduate thesis in Zimbabwe on the affordability and availability of complementary foods. Also, as part of the Master of  Global Health, she chose to do her elective in India which was focused on Public Health with a specification in maternal and child health. She finished her master thesis commissioned by the Heights and Minds Foundation, focused on the main differences in complementary feeding practices between Senegal and Indonesia. She is now collaborating with the Heights and Minds Foundation to develop high-quality growth promotion tools, materials and e-learning modules and start new MindUps in the near future. She is looking forward to gain more knowledge and experience while collaborating with people from all over the world!
