Hello, my name is Barbara Baidoo. I am a Ghanaian, I am who I am today due to the love shared by my lovely family and friends. I grew up in Agona Swedru, a beautiful town in the Central Region of Ghana. My basic education was in the Central Region, however, I completed my Senior High School education at Tema Methodist Day Senior High School located in Tema a city in the Greater Accra Region.
My first degree was  done in the University of Ghana where I read the course I loved most, Geography and Resource development. Currently, I am offering Environmental Science and Sanitation Studies (Mphil) still in the University of Ghana.
Due to my love for the natural sciences, I hope to be a Teacher to impact knowledge into others and also be a consultant to help in eliminating the current environmental issues that are so pressing in my country at the moment.
