While a teenager, Eugenia Duodo, a 31-year-old Ghanaian resident in Toronto, Canada, was discouraged from pursuing her love for science and maths.
Despite the near lack of support to pursue a career in the STEM, Duodo, clutched on to her passion and become the CEO of a thriving company that uses science and math to transform the lives in Toronto, Canada.
Eugenia Duodo was born to Ghanaian parents and holds a PhD in Chemistry from the University of Toronto.
While pursuing a doctorate degree, her tutors advised her to consider cosmetology and quit her dream of becoming a science genius at the university.
Despite the setbacks, she soldiered on to graduate with a PhD in Chemistry.
Duodo’s company, Vision of Science, uses science, technology, engineering and mathematics to help deprived children and youth to become their best. And she attributes her success to her single mother.
According to Face2Face Africa, her dream is to push the youth, especially girls, to develop an interest in STEM.
The young mentor is using her charity, running on a $1-million annual budget with 120 volunteers, to support at least 700 youth from Grades 3 to 12.
Meanwhile, a young Ghanaian man, identified as Edward Eddybless Frimpong, has caused massive stir on social media following his ''heartfelt'' letter to his 'ghost' lover.
Edward Eddybless Frimpong, who by his letter, affirmed that he was looking for love, inked a message to his unseen lover in ''hope'' and ''anticipation'' that he would find her via his letter.
