Dr. Paul Mensah
In a world where most people are concerned with status and recognition, it is very seldom that we meet a person with a sense of modesty. It is therefore with great pleasure that we introduce to you Paul Mensah. He is actually Dr. Mensah, but prefers to keep a low profile and, well, not get caught up in his title.
His background is typical of, or at least similar to a growing number of Ghanaian youth. He was born and raised in Ghana, where he attended St. Augustine's College at Cape Coast during his formative years. He describes his first and only year there as one where he was "very much homoed and beaten" (I'm sure many of us former boarding school students can relate to that). He believes he would have become a 'wicked' senior as well, had he stayed. Paul finished up his high school education in the Bronx, NY. He then went on to Cornell University where he gained a BS in chemical engineering. After that feat, he went on to earn a Ph.D. from the University of Virginia.
Paul now channels all of those years of physical duress and an awesome education into a rewarding career. He is currently working as a research scientist at Pfizer Global R&D, a reputable international research and development company in Groton, CT.
And although we applaud his efforts at modesty, it must be said...
Dr. Mensah, kudos to you!
