Learn More About Charlene’s Journey:

Do I often get asked if I ever have a bad day? The answer is yes! But I always prefer to wear a broad smile no matter how tough things get. Growing up in a very modest family in a community where opportunities are hard to come by, I understood that for me to excel and make an impact in the world, I had to fight. And that included working twice or thrice as hard as my mates in order to stand out in class and in my extracurricular pursuits. But most importantly, I had to do with a broad smile on my face. That’s me!

My ambition is to bring joy to the world, particularly in the lives of children. I’m fascinated by research in cognitive and early childhood development as well as programs that support the healthy development of children. My admission to Haverford College puts me one step closer to my dreams. I see myself thriving at Haverford and capitalizing on all the opportunities this new environment provides to excel and become the world-changer I see myself to be.

Not many young girls in my community dream of attending a prestigious college like Haverford on a full scholarship. I’m glad to be an example and an inspiration to girls in my community. To my parents, I’m eternally grateful to you for grooming me to become a responsible and hardworking young woman. To the staff at the Young Achievers Foundation Ghana, I appreciate your sacrifice and commitment to making leaders out of young Ghanaians such as myself. To the teachers and administrators at my alma mater, Yaa Asantewaa Girls Senior High School, I’m grateful for the nurturing environment you provided me to grow into an intelligent and resourceful student.

Cheers to an exciting four years at Haverford, Pennsylvania!
