Ever since he was a young child in the Central Region of Ghana, Dennis Baffour-Awuah has always been fascinated by living things and their survival and procreation. This interest led him to pursue a general science program in high school. He then went on to obtain his BS degree in Agricultural Biotechnology at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Ghana with a focus on genetics. He has six years of experience in broadcast journalism, working with three different radio stations in Ghana. He currently works at ATL FM, the campus radio station at the University of Cape Coast, Ghana. He believes his participation in the 2018 Fellows program will offer a life-changing experience and in-depth knowledge of agricultural biotechnology, which he views as a promising area of science.
