" As a soon to be doctor, it is of no surprise that I chose a profession that curtails to the health of individuals, it is therefore evident that I am ardent in building a healthier Ghana and subsequently a healthier Earth and I couldn't be more pleased to execute this dream with individuals of a united front. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Bigger, Brighter, Better
The Fellow hopes to hold a project where they travel to schools and communities (as they played a role in our development) and provide them with adequate resources to cater to their health and allow them to function at their full abilities. Execution of this will be in the form of a seminar, in minute groups, that focus mainly on disease prevention and reproductive health. This should alleviate the miscommunication factor from the media that poses a threat. Shealso hope to hold an environmental clean up session to give back to the community and allow these individuals thrive in a healthy and safe space.
