That is me on the left and on the right is Leoony Hagan, the student ambassador at Google.
I had the opportunity to take a picture with him when we both attended Barcamp Ghana 2011, at Kofi Annan Center of Excellence.Leoony attended Dieudonne International School for his JHS and furthered his SHS at Aggrey Memorial A.M.E. Zion and was part of the 2008 graduating batch. I first met Leoony at Aggrey Memorial School as we were both part of the executive committee of Pentecost Students and Associates (PENSA). He is currently studying at the Central University College. He is single, a Christian and loves music. On Facebook, he describes himself as a “cool young man who wants to establish contact with friends from all over the world with good unquestionable characters”. The Google Student Ambassador Program is an opportunity for student to act as liaisons between Google and their universities. Their responsibilities are to learn about innovative Google products and programmes, plan and host fun events on campus, act as a campus contact for Google teams and help Google better understand each university’s culture. This year, Google selected 29 Ambassadors from 5 universities in Ghana. The universities are Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, University of Ghana, University of Cape Coast, Central University College and Ashesi University. The students were selected based on a review of the motivation letters, essays, etc they submitted as part of the application process. They serve as a strategic link between their campuses and Google Ghana. This a very competitive position to hold and so we say Leoony Ayekooo! May God’s grace guide you through this task. AMOSA! Always aim high.
