Give us a brief summary of your experience?

For a month, I interned with the Office of the Special Prosecutor - Ghana (OSP). The OSP is an independent specialized agency responsible for investigating specific cases of alleged or suspected corruption, or corruption-related offences involving Ghanaian public officers and individuals in the private sector. With this opportunity, I was able to attend anti-corruption conferences and summits, sit in on meetings relating to Ghana’s future, contribute to anti-corruption campaigns, and attend court hearings and cases.

How did this experience impact you academically?

My internship helped me understand why critical thinking, consistency, and passion are instrumental to a successful career. These tenets of success are what I am bringing back with me to school when I focus on closing out my undergraduate career.

How will this experience impact your career goals?

My internship revealed where my true interest in a legal career lies. By contributing to my urgent ambition to ultimately eradicate corruption in Ghana, working at the Office of the Special Prosecutor reinforced my decision of attending law school as my next step in education.

How has the College of the Liberal Arts helped you to find and/or succeed in this experience (e.g., adviser, faculty, staff, enrichment funds, etc.)?

The College of the Liberal Arts significantly contributed to my success in this experience as I would not have been able to attend and benefit from this opportunity without the funding and support from my college and enrichment funds.
