Tell us about yourself

I did my bachelor’s at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Kumasi, majoring in Development Planning. Although I was affable and naturally inclined to help others, I did not actively volunteer during my undergrad. My love for volunteering was kindled while working for the Tema Local Government Agency, where I dedicated myself to reducing road traffic accidents by educating commuters and other road users.

Why do you enjoy participating in CEU’s Student Recruitment Internship Program?

After I joined CEU, I enrolled in the student recruitment internship to offer the same help I enjoyed while deciding on the best place to study. The journey has been amazing so far. The internship team has become my first family, and I’ve developed soft skills, including communication skills, through various training programs. Thanks to this internship, I’ve also had first-hand access to interesting CEU and external events.

Why would you recommend CEU to a prospective student?

I’d strongly recommend the CEU Student Recruitment Internship to every admitted student. It helps you transition into the CEU environment with ease whilst equipping you with several life skills, like effective time management, which will prove vital throughout your studies. If you’re gratified to meet a future generation of liberal and critical thinkers, the internship will provide you with the opportunity to guide people in making the right academic choice.

What makes CEU special for you?

Apart from the cultural diversity and the high academic standards of CEU, I especially love the respect that radiates in the CEU community. The school encourages innovation that allows the individual to personally identify their path to success. CEU is not just an academic environment but more like a welfare state.
