Brighter Investment student: Moses Weibaseh Weyori


My name is Moses Weibaseh Weyori. I am currently reading BSc in Minerals Engineering at the University of Mines and Technology, Tarkwa-Ghana . I hope to become an indispensable personnel in the petroleum industry (energy) in order to contribute my quota towards mitigating challenges pertaining to energy globally, specifically in Africa. I am passionate about working in the petroleum industry. I can't wait to see myself there.

I became a part of Brighter Investment through a lecturer who discovered the intellect in me and realized I was needy. What I like about the program is the monthly stipends that come in to support students and I believe the mentorship aspect of the program should be improved as well as creation of job and internship opportunities for beneficiaries both locally and internationally.

I believe that Ghana needs more engineers because every developing country has got a lot of projects to implement and would require the human resources with the technical know-how to accomplish these projects; mostly engineers.

I am currently working on producing high carbon ferrochromium alloy from leather waste ash through a carbothermic process. That is actually my project work towards obtaining my BSc. This project, being research- intensive has exposed me to knowledge I would not have otherwise discovered.
