ABOUT THE AUTHOR I, David Sarpong Kyere was born in Asokore - Koforidua in the Eastern Region of Ghana, West Africa. Attended the Seventh Day Adventist Demonstration School in the same town and then Pope John Secondary School and Junior Seminary in Effiduase. I received my bachelor's degree in the Kwame Nkrumah University Science and Technology where I majored in Renewable Natural Resources Management. I then came to the University of California, Riverside where I did a post graduate certification program in Global Business Management and Administration. Afterwards I went to the Business Industrial Resource Training Center in Chicago. Currently I am at the Bronx Community College doing a prerequisite for New York Earth Science Teacher Certification, majoring in the Earth Systems and Environmental Science then transferring to City College of New York for MSc in Science Education. I am also the founder of the Jehovah Rapha fellowship, a student organization in my former university in Ghana. I worked with the Jehovah Rapha Foundation, an organization helping people living with HIV/AIDS and orphans and vulnerable Children (OVC's). In this career I partnered with organizations such as the Ghana Aids Commission, The World Vision, and The United State Agency for International Development. I have really come into a lot of contact with children and students and education. My passion is to teach in the high schools. This book "YES I CAN" is designed to help the high school students in their academic, career and social life so they can become scholars and achievers in future . It shows how students can become personal in their studies by having their own timetable, strategies on how to learn, effective means of using their time, planning their future career and destiny and other social issues relevant to their well being.
