Hello, My name is Maame or now Dr Benko according to those around me. I am currently a doctor working in the United Kingdom, and I have always had a passion for education.
Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change your world and the world around you. It breaks down the barriers society has set against against you, it changes the trajectory of your life. It opens the very doors and glass ceilings society has closed or established due to your race, gender, ethnicity and social class.
The week my father unfortunately passed away, I remember walking through the streets of Peckham with him and crying my eyes out because he refused to buy me a barbie doll from Argos. Before we got into the car, he stopped me, bent down to my level and said ‘man can take everything away from you, except your knowledge’ and proceeded to explain the importance of education over materialistic gain. I was six years old at the time, but I can still remember the conversation until today.
I have not had the easiest experience growing up; my journey has been filled with death of loved ones, disease, immigration issues and abuse. After the sudden death of my father, my mother had to take on several cleaning jobs in order to cover the bills and I often found myself alone at home. There was only so much CBBC and Kim possible one could watch without getting bored. I remember playing in the garden and standing still for a moment taking in the world around me, what an amazing world it was and I found myself asking how it all worked. My curious mind led me to pick up one of my science books one evening and in that very moment I felt the presence of my father.
Finding out the answers to my questions was amazing, I felt liberated and empowered. I quickly became a walking encyclopaedia and would sit there trying to remember what I had read the day before as a game to test my memory. I subconsciously developed a habit of doing this and utilised this when studying for exams later in life. When I was able to achieve 10 A’s and 5 A*, A*AB and then a first class degree in Biomedical science, Distinction and Merit in my medical degree I knew I was on to a winning technique. It was not until I sat in a psychology class that I found out that my technique had a name already and had ben well researched and proven to be one of the most effective ways of studying.
When I stopped seeing education as a chore but as a vehicle to get me to which ever goal I wanted to achieve that is when my life changed. Your intellect and knowledge is one of the most valuable things you will ever posses, treat it well, expand and add to it. It has the ability to change your life and the world forever. I would not have been where I am today without the chairty shown to me by others, many people supported my journey financially by contributing to my university fees and I would love for us to give back to someone else that has a similar story to mine.
