Meet our NSCS Scholar of the Week, John Tawiah! John is a sophomore at Arizona State University, where he is a Supply Chain Management major.

John’s favorite NSCS experience has been serving as an officer at his chapter. “Since I joined the organisation, I’ve had the chance to communicate with a lot of people, and just that is a great experience for a student like myself from a very small village. I’ve also had the chance to work with my fellow officers on planning activities for the organisation, and this is a great experience,” he says. “I’ve had the chance to volunteer for Feed My Starving Children with the other scholars. I know I’m yet to learn more from this great organization, but I’m very happy with the experiences I’ve had so far and want to share them to motivate the many students out there like myself.”

John has been a leader wherever he’s found himself. “I was the school president from Primary school through Junior High school. I was a teaching assistant for two of my high school teachers. Among my peers in my community, I was the only student to excel in our final National Examination in 2010. From the whole of Ghana, I was the only student who was selected for The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program, which chooses just 50 students from the whole of Africa, at Arizona State University,” he says. “As a first generation student from a very small community, I always feel delighted to share my story to encourage others to move out of their comfort zones. I believe in determination, hard work, and perseverance in achieving your goals in life.”

For his scholastic efforts and service to NSCS, John is our Scholar of the Week! Congratulations!
