Benedict Asare, an alumnus of the University of Ghana who graduated in 2019 has gained admission to become a student at the University of East Anglia, which is one of the top 30 universities in the United Kingdom and one of the top 200 in the entire world.
The young man who is a brother to Edward Asare (the digital marketer for UBA) has been into farming and digital marketing while still pursuing his dream of studying abroad but that does not look like the most remarkable part of the story.
As Edward Asare recounts on his LinkedIn handle, “Benedict kept going to the University of Ghana biotech lab even though he was done with school. He would help some of the students with their lab work. I asked him why he does that and he said ‘I don’t want to get rusty'”.
For the next one year, Benedict will be studying a Master of Science in Global Plant Health, Agricultural Biotechnology after bagged his Bachelor of Science in Agriculture, Molecular Biology and Crop Science.
