There is a plethora of scientific and mathematical conundrums showcased amongst top Senior High Schools (SHSs) at the NSMQ (National Science & Maths Quiz).
It is definitely overselling to say that, when it comes to the unravelling and unleashing of these students' creative and intelligent prowess, there is an alpha and classic woman with such high pedigree behind the NSMQ.
She is no other than Dr. Elsie Effah-Kaufmann who has hosted the NSMQ since 2006 with such unremitting devotion and decorum,finesse and much admiration.
Here is a great source of education and encouragement to you. They are not far fetched.
First of all, she is a Ghanaian academician, a biomedical engineer and the quiz mistress for the NSMQ. She epitomizes Robert Kiyosaki's bestseller, Why A (Academicians) students work for B(Bureaucrats) and C(Capitalists) students.
Thirdly, Dr. Kaufmann is an alumna of ABUGISS (Aburi Girls' Senior High School).
Additionally, she holds an International Baccalaureate Diploma from United World College of the Atlantic in Wales in 1988.
Moreover, she proceeded with her first degree in Engineering (BSE) - Bachelor of Science in Engineering, a MSEC (Master of Science in Engineering) and a PhD in Biomedical Engineering.
Her teaching and research supervision places high premium on Tissue Engineering, Biomaterials Engineering and Biomedical Engineering Application concepts which are creative solutions to Ghanaian problems.
She is the current President of Ghana Society of Biomedical Engineers.
She is a recipient of the International Academic Leadership Award for her remarkable recognition and excellence in S.T.E.M (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).
As Eminem would say in his hitsong with platinum awards, Lose Yourself, you can do anything that you set your mind to. No one can ever make you feel inferior without your consent. She is unstoppable. She is relentless. She is a PUSH QUEEN - one who never ever gives up that easily.
I can proudly call her Ghana's Condolezza Rice.
