What are your best memories from childhood?
My favourite memories are from primary school; every last semester we had a party because we were graduating to the next stage. Though my mother didn’t have much she would always prepare something for me to take to school, such as juice, which made me so happy.
What do you think are the biggest challenges facing industry in Ghana today?
They don’t give opportunities to fresh graduates to work with them. They always need employees with three years and above working experience before they employ them. But it shouldn’t be like that, companies should have to give greater chances to new graduates to be trained and then acquire knowledge with more experience.

What or who is your biggest inspiration?
My biggest inspiration is my mother. Though she is illiterate she is always concerned with my education and works hard to support me to achieve my aim. My mother was truly a hard working woman, but she is now getting old. She always advises me and motivates me to lead a decent life and to try to learn new things.
What is your greatest achievement so far?
I have achieved fault tracing, repairing and creating.

I will encourage them to pursue engineering because it will make them smart, feel bonded in everything, and learn personal hand work. You will learn to be innovative.
