Share the Wealth with Lynda Oppong: Finding Purpose

I am grateful for this opportunity to talk a little bit about myself and my experiences so far. How living between two countries now have moulded who I am now and how my life in the US has helped me look back at Africa and has given me this strong desire to go back home and help my own people in any way I can. Usually, when people leave the continent, they find it hard finding their way back and helping their communities and all their talent and skill is used to help other places grow. As Africans, I believe it is important to realize how much potential the continent has and how much room there is for improvement and development. It is my desire to take advantage of the learning experiences I’ve had here to help my continent in any way I can.

I am a final year student at Maryville University, studying criminal justice. I am originally from Ghana, West Africa and I’ve been here for four years getting my bachelors degree. The goal is to go to law school then move back home after.
