Why do I need iSTEPup?
My name is Adwoa Benyiwah Amoah, a third year medical student in the University of Development studies in Ghana. In my third year, financial challenges begun again, since raising money for my school fees is a big challenge for my family. My parents will soon be going on retirement and I did not know how to pay my fees if they would leave public service. With the assistance of iSTEPup, I will fulfil my dream of being an excellent medical doctor.
