Belinda is a first year student of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) studying Actuarial Science. Belinda is enjoying a comprehensive college sponsorship from HopE Ghana. She comes from a family of eight children with elderly parents who are subsistent farmers. This situation put Belinda’s dream of a college education in jeopardy. HopE Ghana discovered Belinda and paid for her to attend college. Without this support, it is very likely that she would be like so many of her peers and never be able to attend school again. This brilliant teenager dreams of becoming a professional actuary, to establish a consulting business that extends a helping hand to needy and poor of society.
