An alumna of University of Ghana and now a PHD student at Cambridge Universit, Alice Amegah Xorlaly has made Ghanaians proud with her latest achievements.
Alice graduated with a first class Degree in 2018 from the University of Ghana.
Ben Dotsei Malor, the Chief Editor of the Dailies of the UN News at the United Nations in a long piece on Facebook explained how she got it.
He wrote; CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY – CELEBRATING A BRILLIANT PUBLIC-SPIRITED YOUNG SISTER WHO’S NOW PRESIDENT OF THE AFRICAN SOCIETY OF CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY:
A big salute and many congratulations to our Sister Amegah Alice Xorlaly, who has just been elected President of the African Society of Cambridge University, (ASCU).
ASCU’s stated mission is “to be a focal point for people who share an interest in and commitment to Africa. The ASCU platform is one for networking and discourse on issues of Pan-African importance.”
Alice clinched a First-Class Bachelor’s degree from the University of Ghana in 2018, before proceeding, on scholarship, to the University of Oxford, where she earned her Master’s degree in Comparative and International Education. She is currently pursuing a PhD in Education and International Development at Cambridge University.
Alice comes from a very modest background but has become an inspiration to me and many others, especially younger folks, through her hard/smart work, brilliance, and excellence. She is passionate about sustainable systems that can attract and retain girls and women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, especially in Technical and Vocational Education and Training.
She loves to serve, especially as a strong advocate for the acquisition of valuable, essential, and lucrative skills, especially by the youth, towards Ghana’s sustainable development. This has led her to establish an NGO, called “Education and Aspirations Hub”, to pursue her strong belief in using appropriate, relevant, and timely career guidance that can yield great transformation for youth in Ghana’s pre-tertiary education system.
