Hometown/place of birth: Accra, Ghana

Medical school and location: Medical University of the Americas (Nevis)

Special interests and future plans: I haven't pinpointed one area as of yet, TBA. However, I enjoy Critical Care and Nephrology.

Interests/hobbies outside of medicine: I love dancing, reading, cooking, eating, going out with family and friends, drawing, watching basketball (now, college ball).

Languages spoken, other than English: Twi fluently (Ghanaian language), and a bit of French.

Why you decided to come to our program: I enjoyed the dinner with the residents the night before the interview. It gave me a sense that the residents were happy, and were learning a lot. I also enjoyed the noon conference, which showed the academic side of the program and the attention paid to detail in regards to learning/teaching.
