FamousFix (Ghanaian scientists - list) among others list Ghanaians who are making great contributions in various fields around the globe, and it is HyperCitigh’s partial mandate to showcase some of these great people for the youth to emulate. Currently, we all know the necessity of good role models for grooming our youths. Role modeling is a necessity for today’s Ghanaian youths and the above is only a snapshot of the many we seek to showcase to encourage our youths that, this not far from them which they can do exceedingly more. In this era of misinformation, peer pressure, among other social vises we all have the obligation to steer our youth in the right direction not to fall them on the wrong path.

Moreover, we as Ghanaians, Africans, and black people as a whole need to learn to appreciate celebrating our own; young and old, dead and alive, small and big contributions and achievements, etc., they all add to the overall developmental and encouragement pie. Ghana Secondary Technical School (GSTS) was chosen for this publication because it is one of the Ghanaian STEM high schools with a track record in the sciences and technical fields.
