The winner, Ms. Effah, thanked CWG for the honour. “I am humbled and I give all the glory to God. I didn’t imagine myself in the field of computer science, but due to circumstances beyond my control I found myself here, fell in love with it and now I am the proud winner of this very special award.” “I was also inspired by the teaching assistants who helped lecturers. They were good at what they did and I told myself that I can do it too. Computer science, in today’s world of technology, can be applied anywhere including medicine and pharmacy,” she noted.
