Hello, I am Shirley Acquah, a native of Ghana. I have always had a peculiar interest in the field of Communication. After obtaining a Bachelor of Arts degree, I pursued a Post-Graduate Diploma in Mass Communication at the University of Ghana. I recently graduated with a Master of Arts in International Affairs from Ohio University, focusing on Communication and Development Studies. My areas of interest at the Doctoral level include health communication, social change campaigns and community participation for marginalized populations. I look forward to a challenging, interesting and fulfilling academic journey. I am an affable person willing to interact and work with folks in the COMS program.
