BioBenon grew up as the first born son to a large family in a small farming community, and like his neighbors it was challenging to meet their basic needs. As he saw his classmates turn to drugs to ease their pain, his focus was on being a role model for his 7 younger siblings. He modeled his work ethic after his mother and father, always striving to pay for their kids’ school fees so they could rise from poverty.
Focused on others above himself, Benon decided to study Agricultural Economics to help both his family and his community as a whole by giving him the education necessary to revolutionize rural farming practices and bring sufficient clean water to his village.
When he is not studying, Benon loves participating in his campus’ debate club, completing public service projects, and encouraging more students to find their voice through public speaking!
