STEM Summer  Scholar 2012 - Ishmael Sagoe

My name is Ishmael Sagoe. I’m from Ghana, which is located in West Africa. I permanently immigrated to the United States in August 2008. I currently attend Bronx Community College, where I major in chemistry. My long-term goal is to become a medical doctor and specialize in cardiology.

I was introduced to the STEM program by Dr. Neal Phillip, to whom I owe many thanks. This program has given me the opportunity to do research and to learn a variety of skills, such as how to record research data and prepare presentations, and it has also improved my computer skills!

I cannot conclude without acknowledging Dr. Timothy Paget, who has been providing me with tremendous assistance from the very first day. Other people who have helped me include Dr. Sushmita Bagchi and Goodness Iheanachor (B.S.).
