Meanwhile, a Ghanaian young man by the name of Yaw Appiah Bempong was granted an interview by YEN.com.gh where he opened up about his journey to becoming a Computer Engineer and a Medical Doctor.
The emergence of two passions
I had my secondary education at Presbyterian Boys Senior High School, Legon and that was where my passion for engineering and medicine sprouted.
Pursuing Computer Engineering
I was torn between pursuing engineering and medicine after Presec. I loved both so I applied for Computer Engineering in Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) and Biological Science at the University of Ghana, Legon.
According to Yaw, he had to apply for Biological Science in Legon because back in 2008/09, one had to apply for that in first year and then pursue medicine in second year.
Making a choice
I gained admission to pursue both courses and I had to make a choice. I leaned more towards the computer engineering at that time, because the world we know, is becoming a technological world and I didn’t want to spend more time in school doing medicine (ironically).
