A former student of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), has chalked great success by gaining admission to the University of Oxford.
Enoch Boafo Amponsah, who was a Research & Teaching Assistant at the Department of Sociology and Social Work in KNUST, is full of joy and praise after he gained admission to study at of the best universities in the world on a scholarship.
In his words, he expressed shock over this great opportunity which he had never imagined nor dreamt of. According to him, if he had been told at any point that he will one day be at the University of Oxford, he simply wouldn’t have taken the person seriously, but here the reality has happened.
In a post sighted by Traynews, he said, “In one of the most difficult years in my life, it feels surreal to announce that I will be commencing my graduate studies at the University of Oxford pursuing a Masters in Evidence-Based Social Intervention and Policy Evaluation. More fascinating about this news is that I was selected as the only Ghanaian amongst 35 scholars from 25 countries for the Weidenfeld-Hoffmann Scholarship and Leadership Programme. I am proud to be the second Ghanaian ever to win this prestigious award.
Seven years ago after my senior high school education, if anyone had told me that I will be in the best university in the world, I would have laughed but God in His perfect timing “engineered” my journey to get me this far. Indeed, He makes all things beautiful in His time.
I got here because I stood on the shoulders of giants (close family & friends) whose immense support & sacrifice I don’t take for granted. I’m poised for what is ahead and more confident in God’s plan in my life.
