My love for the outdoors. I love nature and the phenomena that forms nature. I met people who had passion for STEM and showed the fun part of STEM.
Lack of adequate facilities in laboratories, inadequate access to appropriate educational materials. Funding for adequate research.
The fact that I didn’t have everything I needed, gave me the motivation to make the best use of the little I had access to. This has also strengthened my drive to achieve excellence as I pursue my career.
Africans should see themselves as an integral part of the global STEM Community. We should begin to build credibility and integrity in our research. We should draw into the global research themes and contribute meaningfully to its development
It can only get better from where you currently are, you just have to put in a little more effort and dedication.
Do you identify as an African in STEM? If so, please send us some basic information to see if we can profile you on the VSA page.
I think it’s about time you heard my story.
