A graduate of Opoku Ware School (AKATAKYIE) and the 2020 Young Achievers Foundation Ghana Scholars Program. Starting this Fall, Herbert will begin his undergraduate education at Northwestern University on a full scholarship worth $85,000 per year.
Raised by a single parent after the loss of his father, Herbert has strived to excel both in his academic work and in his extracurricular pursuits.
Herbert describes himself as a tech enthusiast, an environmentalist, and a passionate social entrepreneur. He is one of the leaders of Youth for Climate Action (Youth4CA), a grassroots movement that is working to mobilize youth to address the environmental challenges facing Ghana.
