Eric was born in Ghana and is currently a Master of Education student at the Berkeley School of Education with a focus on Policy, Politics, and Leadership. He is one of the 20 MasterCard Foundation Scholars living at International House this year.
He spent three years living in China, where I traveled to many cities: Harbin, Hangzhou, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Yiwu, Shandong, and many others, before and after the pandemic. He is very passionate about educational equity and is always looking for ways society and the world at large can help improve access to education for people in low-income, developing countries, and marginalized and underserved communities. During his leisure time, he loves creating videos, listening to music, and taking pictures. Eric will be helping the Communications team with photography, video production, and fresh content for our websites, ihberkeleyconnect.org and other social media outlets.
Eric writes, “I'm very excited about the opportunity to experience the wonderful moments with you through my lenses while at I-House and the beautiful Berkeley community.”
