I do recognize that what matters most, is how all of this translates to making the lives of others better and that this is just the beginning of a lifelong learning process.
My time at Kwame Nkrumah' University of Science and Technology, Kumasi has been nothing else but a blessing. I am sincerely grateful to the Mastercard Foundation Scholars program at KNUST for believing in me and allowing me to get this far.
Thanks to my lecturers Ing. Dr. Henry Nunoo-Mensah, PE-GhIE, Jephthah Yankey, Daniel Opoku, Ph.D. Andrew Selasi Agbemenu, Ing. Kommey, Eric Tutu Tchao and everyone else who have been mentors to me.
Looking forward to begin my new role as an Engineering analyst at Goldman Sachs and looking to transfer the skills I build to make the world a better place."
