We tell our story Uniquely. Alumni week celebrations kickstarted with Dr. Efua Antwiwaa Thompson who spoke on the theme: Celebrating our Pride: TIS Alumni Taking Territories Impacting the World Positively!
Highlights Gleaned from her presentation:
- Take your academics seriously!
- Never lose sight of the limitless opportunities here at TIS. It develops your skills and talents.
- In her words, “Even though I am a licensed doctor I make cakes and pastries on the side and interestingly at times it fetches me more money than being a doctor. What do I mean? Developing your hobbies attracts extra income?
- TIS has a lot more to offer you; make use of CAS. Do something- baking, cooking, arts and many more….
To add to this Dr. Thompson touched on her Medical journey with the College Guides:
- If you want to study Medicine you must be self-motivated and passionate.
- There are other branches in the Science field, so research to find out more before you begin.
- Medicine is a long route think deeply before you embark on the journey. Some quit along the journey!
- Postgraduate medicine is also an option to consider if you want to broaden your options before deciding to pursue Medicine after the first degree.
Wow! She is a doctor at Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, a baker and is happily married to Mr. Kofi Dankwa-Smith. Congratulations Efua!
