Maame, our long-term strategist, comments on what she describes as a LONG adventure, her commitment to the environment, and her journey to finding long-term solutions!
Thinking ahead of issues is not as fun as thinking with the issues in real-time. This summarizes my role over the last 10 weeks of researching at my former campus, but still home – Ashesi University College, Berekuso. The Zoomlion experience, the organic composting research, and the hour-long meetings to discuss various feasible options for the Ashesi Campus, have all been churned into the Ashesi long-term strategy report for water and waste monitoring and management. Every cause has its own effects whether good or bad, yet the effects are what really matters and what can cause change. The impact from my experiences over these past ten weeks has made me a better ambassador, especially for supporting the course ‘SAVING THE ENVIRONMENT’.
Looking at the past 10 weeks, it has been fun, challenging, annoying yet also pleasant in many ways. Traveling up and down the Berekuso Mountain several times for one reason or the other, has been one of the negatives. However, being the events manager for the team has been one of the positive things I cannot forget. Work to me is all about creating your own fun as much as possible, and I have tried to do just that. It may not have been a red carpet event experience, yet it is valued for many reasons I may not be able to say. Creating solutions is something I do for fun, thus having to do it on a professional and more organized platform has been a good adventure, and one definitely worth taking pride in.
To end this final stretch of the long-term journey, all I remember is this: I am a long-lived adventurer seeking to create long-lasting solutions and I am happy to say I just completed a long journey finding long-term solutions for a new home.
