I have Masters degree in Biochemistry from the University of Ghana and a PhD in Chemistry from the University of Florida. I’m a scientist with GlaxoSmithKline. I spent my early years in a rural area in the Techiman District of Ghana. I passion for childhood education and special concern for the healthcare burden in Sub-Saharan Africa, especially issue of malaria and HIV that are robbing millions of hope, and I believe my educational background as a scientist and cultural roots place me at an advantage point to be able to speak about these issues in a way the makes sense to the communities. I enjoy soccer with Arsenal FC being my favorite football team.
