One Semester, Next A MESTer

  1. You’re still in Ghana? (those who thought I’d jump straight into a Master’s degree programme abroad)
  2. What’s MEST? (those who have never heard of MEST)
  3. Wow! How did you get in? (those who know the magnitude of what I’ve gotten into)

2. What is MEST?

Considering that this is the MEST blog, it might simply be appropriate to point you to the official about page, however, I will say a few words on what MEST is from my point of view.

3. How did you get in?

This is the real question, isn’t it? Unfortunately, as I said earlier, I can only make assumptions to answer this question. The best people to tell you why I got in would be the MEST recruitment team. However, I can still share my opinions with you:

  • Entrepreneurial Instinct
  • Drive / Stamina
  • Team Player
  • Communication Skills
  • Personality / Humour
  • Intelligence
  • Culture

So What Next?

There really is a lot to this new phase of my life, the MEST life. It’s not all enjoyment, fun and games here, although occasionally we get out and de-stress. We wake up every day and work hard because someone has to do the work to make Africa a better place. This is just the beginning of a journey: one that ends in a new Ghana, a new Africa, a new world.
