Brief biography

Kenneth Kwaku Amponsah is a first-generation college student from Ghana, West Africa, with a Bachelor of Education in Accounting from the best University in West Africa, University of Cape-Coast, Ghana. My passion for education was ignited during my undergraduate years when I taught Financial Accounting to final year students in high school. I later gained professional experience as an Accountant with the Ghana Health Service, broadening my financial management expertise. Kenneth's pursuit of knowledge and impact led him to the United States, where he is currently pursing a M.S.Ed in Student Affairs Administration at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. He is the Graduate Assistant at the Office of Multicultural Student Services with focus on Academic and Financial Retention. Beyond academics, Kenneth enjoys connecting with people from diverse backgrounds, exploring other cultures, watching movies and enjoys soccer as I am a passionate FC Barcelona fan.
