EVENT DATE Jul 14, 2014
My name is Kofi Afful, I am first generation college graduate and on the road to be the first in my family with a Masters degree. None of my parents were afforded the opportunity to go to college when they lived in Ghana, West Africa.
I am currently nearing my last semester as graduate student at City College of New York and I have been giving the chance to go Brazil to study how emerging countries in the international community. This will be a beneficial experience for me to get learn valuable tools that I can one day take back to Ghana. One of my life dreams to be able help in the continuous development in Ghana as the country is on the path of political and economic stability.
This course in Brazil will be an eye-opening experience for me to get a first hand account of how Brazil was able to emerge as a leading country in the international community. Brazil has gone through major economic reforms that have been to the country’s benefit. I would like compelling to studying in the country that has recently gone through an economic growth.
