My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Educational Pathways International, Incline Village, NV, USA
I am Rose Nyarkoah Gyesi, a third year Geography major student of the University of Ghana. I am a beneficiary of the Educational Pathways International (EPI) scholarship program and being a beneficiary of this reputable family has been a life changing moment for me. To me, I say that EPI is just not a charitable Organization but a home of nurturing students to release their potentials, acquire skills and develop passion for their goals in today’s world.
Hitherto, I use to see myself as a drop out because I was constantly coupled with financial difficulties as a tertiary student. But now, with the support of EPI, I am able to cater for my financial and academic needs. Now I am able to focus on my studies. Not only that, I have attained knowledge on time management, setting of goals in life and a lot more through our frequent organized meetings and seminars organized by our able Program Director. Also, I have been able to acquire practical skills and field experience through the internship programs we partake during vacations. As such my interest in leadership and giving back to society has heightened.
As a member of EPI family, I can now boldly say I have a promising future. This is because I now have all the necessary support to complete my bachelor’s degree which is the first step to achieve my career goal. Becoming a Professor has always been my dream. In my field of study (Geography), I would like to impart knowledge to students and others through my research and recommendations on the earth’s phenomena and its associated problems we experience as the earth interacts with other systems.
Geography is a discipline that explores all aspects of the earth and its related systems, functioning, hazards as well as its inhabitants. As the earth been the only planet that support humans life, gaining knowledge in this field is a right step to contribute to the development of the country through it sectors of urban planning and spatial organizations. Moreover, taking research into environmental problems such as flooding, waste management, deforestation among others can help me contribute to the rightful solutions needed to curb the menace of the devastating effects of these problems we face in our societies and Ghana as a whole.
My profound gratitude to EPI for their priceless support to me and all other brilliant and needy students in the world.
