Today on the personality corner, we interview our dynamic personality for the week Isaac Andoh. Read on to find out thrilling gist about our personality as well as his ideas.
Who is behind Mr. Isaac Andoh?
We are two boys and I am the last. I hail from Adjumako in the Central Region. I reside in Mankessim. I am a jovial person. I like to challenge people on what they believe. I attended Barbara International school in Takoradi and furthered to Ghana Secondary Technical School. I was the health prefect during our turn. I became the secretary in LI-GSTS. I was much interested in spoken word. I would say I was the most “hyped spoken word artiste”. Most of the staff were always looking for me and I used to perform a spoken word every anniversary. I was the president for the singing group called “The corner Stone”.
Share with us your experience in the second cycle institution? (Any teaser name back in SHS and fond memories)
A lot of people liked me because I was very approachable and friendly. Everyone was always having something positive about me, though I had others who didn’t like me. I had several nicknames- Tiflex, a nickname from my basic school. I like the way the juniors used to call me “Senior Isaac”. I used to take part in drama too. We didn’t win but I think we got close.
Why KNUST and why Forestry?
I wanted University of Ghana because I was more into the art course even as a science student but when it was time for buying forms, I just bought KNUST forms. I wanted to pursue arts and drama; KNUST just came out of the blue. I didn’t want forestry. I actually wanted optometry and used forestry as an add up and surprisingly I had it. I didn’t make enough enquiries about the program.
Can you tell us about Forestry?
Forestry deals with ways we can conserve trees. The course takes us through how to develop the country without clearing the trees and depriving us of the benefits.
A re-count of all the experiences from first year until this current year?
The first experience I had in the tertiary was the love at first sight drama, well a lot of people always experience that. The subsequent experiences were spiritual. I became more committed and passionate about God. Doing spoken word in second year was a nice experience as well as having my campaign, running for my college organizer even though I didn’t win. My roommates have also been amazing people from first year.
What would you say about PENSA-KNUST?
There is something about PENSA that always makes me want to be at their services and in front at that. They are very friendly and open. They always check up on you. It’s a nice feeling to talk to them.
Amongst all the committees, why did you decide to choose Editorial committee?
A prefect from the second cycle institution sent me there. I was initially in music and drama. There’s a part of me that always wants to do social activities and I thought it was the best place to be. Editorial committee is a place where everyone is trying to discover themselves and so, I love the people a lot. I actually love humans in general.
What comment can you give about the year’s theme and focus?
I think people don’t really know Christ. They claim to know him but it’s based on their feelings. PENSA bringing this theme up puts us on the platform to know more about him and proclaim his agape love for others as well.
How did you become born again and what are some changes you’ve seen?
I was already born into the church. I was playing one day and I saw the heavens open and I started speaking in tongues. I could see visions and I could heal people as well. I had this inherent zeal for talking to people about God afterwards.
Who is your favorite Bible character?
Jesus Christ. Anytime I read about him, it inspires me to be better at loving people, helping people and above all his commitment to God.
Do you have an inspirational person?
My mom. She teaches me to be prayerful, to learn and help people. She always encourages and she’s the best parent I could have ever had. She inspires me to be a better person and advises me on a daily basis from happenings.
What do you enjoy doing during your leisure time?
It depends on my mood. If I’m happy, I watch movies and I text a lot too. I have a fixed leisure time where I just pray as I take a walk. I love reading too, mostly novels.
What should we expect from you in the near future?
I look forward to becoming a better person in my family and to be the person my friends expect me to be. I hope to rise up like a star for my contemporaries.
Are you paired? If Yes can we know her name?
How do you want your future spouse to be like?
She should be very intelligent, very fun, God fearing, innovative and strong. She should be fashionable as well and lover of arts[drama, music, creative arts, choreography] and must have an interesting personality in general.
Do you think Campus relationships are advisable and is it necessary to be anxious about it?
Campus relationships are not really advisable. You have to focus on yourself and build something better, explore and make friends, not necessarily a relationship. Learn from others and admire people. I think that should be it.
Do you have any proposal for PENSA-KNUST/ improvement you want to see?
I want to see people coming to service always and interacting more with people after service, a very strong bond aside committees.
God bless you lovely reader catch you on our next exclusive encounter as we bring to you yet another intriguing personality.
