I am a Educational Leadership Doctorial student at Minnesota State University, Mankato. I was fortunate to get an internship at KNUST University in Kumasi, Ghana, West Africa. I am assigned to the Counselling Unit in the Dean of Student's Office.

I would like to obtain a administrative position in Africa or the Virgin Islands after I complete my degree.
