Unforgettable recollection of studying at University of Ghana
200948220 YUK SOOK HEE
Sometimes an impromptu decision can bring you more than you expected. Especially,when I decided to go to developing countries for study, not even my professor didn’t recommend doing so.However, it was one of my greatest experiences in my life to study in University of Ghana particularly ISSER (Institute of Statistical, Social, and Economic Research).
27 classmates mostly Ghanaian and also coming from other African countries including Mozambique, and Nigeria have passion and enthusiasm to develop Africa continent. Countless discussions with them about African development have given me various views of African which I can’t learn from school in Korea or any books.Interestingly, there was a current Politian, a colonel of the UN peacekeeper army in Liberia, and an immigration officer, a teacher, a former UN staff, and so forth in our class. Studying with those who have different background and diverse ideas and concepts of development, economic growth, corruption in Africa is sometimes more fascinating than class.
I was so lucky to study in University of Ghana, which is one of the leading academicinstitutionsin Africa and learn from wonderful lecturers. Furthermore, studying and living in Ghana for one year provides me with an opportunity to learn Ghanaian cultures, local languages, people, food and its history.
Ibelieve that it was indeed helpful to deepen and widen my knowledge of African study and its development. I would like to strongly recommend to my colleague who wants to experience and learn “Real Africa”.
