“I chose to study at Curtin because of the educational success Curtin has achieved over the years in public health education. Having a degree from Curtin will place me at a better position in the health sector and in the job market. I am currently involved in mental health, and my career plan is to be able to help people who are mentally challenged in Ghana to live a better life in their communities.”
