“One of the biggest things I’m excited about is to go to an institution that grooms students to be problem solvers. Yale’s commitment to African development through its multiple initiatives makes it an ideal environment where I can continue to develop my skillset to better the communities that have allowed me to get there”
– YAF Ghana Scholar Julian T. Kodua
