How do you juggle school and other activities at the same time?

I don’t sleep much, that’s how! I am involved in many different things: I am a full-time Masters student, I work in the business department of our university, I run my own international business, I am in our Entrepreneurial Scholars program and I am the president of our Enactus team.

All I want is to make this world a better place before I leave it. As for my passion behind traveling, a quote by Saint Augustine may say it best, “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page”. I am not very materialistic, but I do treasure experiences, and those travel experiences let me grow as a person and learn more about the beautiful world around me.

For my parents were very passionate about enrolling me into school, we relocated from our village to urban areas where I could attend school. Through the help of my mum, I could overcome all the challenges by engaging in home business (making and selling of ice block, making of beads, weaving of hair etc.) among others.

Apart from school, what else do you do?

I used to read much about autism and learn what it was all about. It’s not actually a bad thing as the African society perceives it to be. Now that I am back from SUSI 2017, I have done a research on the rural and community schools who have no school buildings and learning materials such as exercise books, textbooks, pens, pencils, school bags, and other things that make learning easy. So I have the list of such schools which can be found in all the 10 regions in Ghana. I have decided to select some like about 5 to 10 schools and visit. I went do a market search on how much these materials cost in the market. I intend to use my salary of my national service which is about to start soon.
