I am Godwin Agbeka, a final-year Undergraduate Biochemistry student at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST). I became an Eleos Cares Foundation Scholar at the beginning of my second year, and it has been a tremendous blessing for me. In the offer of scholarship letter, we were promised Academic fees and Accommodation if necessary. Eleos has done more than these things. Our academic fees are always paid in full, our accommodation is always sorted, and we have been receiving allowance each month of the year, including vacations. During the School years, Eleos Cares Foundation provides morning and afternoon food commodities for its scholars. This generous kindness of Eleos helps me to study in peace without having to starve myself during examination week. I got an extra benefit where Eleos Cares Foundation paid for my accommodation two consecutive times during the grand vacations so that I could stay and have the necessary research experience that will prepare me for graduate school.
My dream is to become an accomplished Biomedical scientist carrying out groundbreaking research that will help improve the lives of humans. Having lost a lot of people to Cancer, including my second-year Physical Chemistry professor who died in November 2022, I am highly inspired to enter the field of Cancer Biology where I will try to understand the signal transduction pathways of cancer cells and their metabolism as well as exploring their genetics to treating them at the molecular level. I love to give back to the community, hence, trying to do the best I can for them. Because of this, I do help teach and prepare my high school students for the National Science and Math Quiz competition (NSMQ) during vacations.
