For as long as I can remember, I have dreamed
of science. Where others see the engineering, experimentation, and presentation
of science as a chore, I only see excitement. Even as a child I constantly
sought it out, first on television with Gifted hands and CSI Las Vegas, then later in person in every museum exhibit
I could find. Science in all its forms captivated me, but science projects in
particular were a category all to themselves. To me, science projects were a
special joy that only grew with time. In fact, it was this continued
fascination for hands-on science that brought me years later to Kumasi Technical
University. Being admitted in to
their three years Science and Industrial Laboratory Technology programme made me feel like a kid in a candy store. Just
the thought of participating in a project at the Microbiology,
Chemistry and Biochemical lab at that level of scientific rigor made me forget that that was just
a drop from a mighty occean and I spent the first day eagerly examining
every piece of equipment.

Even at first, when the whole class sat there
doing rote calculations and others felt like they were staring down the barrel
of defeated purpose, I remained enthusiastic. Time and time again I reminded
myself of that famous phrase “great effort leads to great rewards,”
and sure enough, soon my aspirations began to be met. This shift in attitude
also coincided with a shift in location: from the incubator  to the
autoclave at the Microbiolgy lab.

Now things began to get really interesting. At the end of the
three year HND programme, I became more interested and passionate in health
sector after my internship at St Peter’s Catholic Hospital Asankrangua, St
Peter’s catholic Hospital Jacobu and Tradewinds Chemist Limited at Ayigya in
Kumasi. During the internship,
I discovered how Doctors identify diseases and
disoders
of patients and how drugs are
being manufactured and controlling it’ quality. At this juncture, I know that
laboratory technicians are the backbone of diagnoses and treatment. But to
become a certified medical laboratory technician, I need to pursue medical
laboratory programme to achieve my goal. Reading from Lily Takeuchi a medical laboratory
alumni from The University of British Columbia, Brinn Powell, Xinya Wang about how they were challenged to learn
many new laboratory skills, acquire knowledge in a wide variety of different
subjects, write lab reports, and improve their presentation skills,  I said to myself, “wow, I can also accomplish
this skill”.

Because
I am applying as an international student, I needed a school that treat all
students equal, irrespective of your race or continent. I choose University of
British Columbia after listening to Jessie Wang from the medical laboratory science class of 2015, how professors went beyond the textbook and even beyond the bench to
incorporate clinical relevance and the directions she got from Dr.

David Huntsman during her research, I think I will find my expectations in your
school as an international student

I cannot say much about the campus after
the virtual tour at Vancouver campus, the UBC Welcome Centre,
the TRIUMF, UBC Library, (CIRS),
The Beaty Biodiversity
Museum, UBC Botanical Garden and Centre for Plant Research,
just to talk of few, I have never seen such places here in Ghana.

 I feel more alive, I have always dreamed of
science so I think University of British
Columbia it the place i should
be to achieve my aim. To me, medical science is the future and through it I
seek another, permanent, opportunity to follow my passion.
