Seth Adarkwah Yiadom was born and bred in Kumasi, Ghana. Seth is one of the determined and motivated African youths who believes in using statistical research to make the society a better place to live in. He had his basic school education in one of the remote areas in Kumasi-Ghana in 2009. Due to his hardwork, he gained admission into one of the top high schools in Kumasi. He gained a Bachelor of Science degree in Statistics at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Ghana (2013-2017), and in 2017 he was awarded the overall best male Statistics student for the Provost Excellence award. He served as a Teaching Assistant in the department of Mathematics and Statistics, KNUST (September 2017-September 2018). In October 2018 – June 2019, he studied for a Masters’ degree in Mathematical Sciences at the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS), Cameroon. He was an exceptionally talented student and was nominated as top student in all his statistics courses. He describes his experience at AIMS as second to none, in that AIMS has improved his communication and programming skills as well as exposing him to a lot of opportunities in life. Currently (2019-date), he is a Graduate Teaching Assistant, pursuing MS. Statistics at Northern Arizona University, USA. His aspiration in life is to become a worldwide known Statistician and researcher who can contribute in bridging the gap between academia and society through his research work.
