Meet Rose Aning, The 2022 Valedictorian of the College Of Health Sciences – Legon

Girls and women across the world have been systematically diverted from science education therefore limiting their options in fields that require these skills. Women reportedly make up only 28% of the workforce in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and so when they choose and excel in these fields, there is a need for them to be celebrated.

Ms. Rose Aning graduated from Aburi Girls Senior High School in 2016 with 7As in the West African Senior School Certificate Examination.

She had admission into the University of Ghana in 2017 where she chose to study Respiratory therapy after being intrigued by the contribution of Respiratory Care in Neonatal and Paediatric health.

Rose desires to further her education in respiratory care to acquire much knowledge and skills in addressing challenging aspects of pulmonary medicine and to promote respiratory care in Ghana and the world. She is motivated by the desire to make a positive difference and an impact in the lives of people, especially children. 

She enjoys teaching, drawing, reading and engaging in activities that promote self-development. Additionly she is passionate about music and served in the University of Ghana Jubilee Choir and the UG NUPS-G Levites Choir while on campus. 

Ms. Rose Aning believes the Love of God, humility, determination, discipline and integrity are virtues worth holding on to for a successful life.
