From our personal lives to our professional lives, we often find ourselves standing at the crossroads of decisions, confused as to which path to take.

Recently, the University of Mines and Technology (UMAT) in Tarkwa held its 7th Career and Innovation Fair under the theme “Think Smart, be Innovative.” The President of the Students Representative Council, His Excellency Isaac Aryeetey, graced the occasion with a beautiful and inspiring presentation which really reflected his passion and sincere desire to help others. His carefully crafted presentation was not only educative but also engaging, sprinkled with personal anecdotes and very relatable experiences.
He illustrated how to think smart in creating job opportunities, and how to hunt for problems in companies and present them with solutions. He further urged the students to develop an interest in attending more seminars and webinars to equip themselves for the outside world. Quoting Buckminster Fuller, he stated that one never changes things by fighting against the existing reality but rather to change something, one must build a model that makes the old model obsolete.
Thus, in our quest to renew our minds and emancipate ourselves from outdated systems, we should learn to be asking the right questions in our quest for jobs.
The atmosphere in the room was electric and one could literally feel the captivation of the audience by his presentation. Without a doubt, his talk left an indelible mark on everyone present. One can only imagine what this young vibrant leader has in store for students next.
