Ruth Dankwah

Electrical and Computer Engineering - Student

When a family emergency required that Ruth Dankwah begin high school after classes had already commenced, she found few classes still available for registration. With little interest in the subject, Ruth selected Introduction to Web Design as one of her electives. It turned out to be her favorite class that year and Ruth followed that interest into high school computer science classes, eventually enrolling at UK as a computer engineering major. One of the first students to receive a Garver Family Scholarship (see page 12), Ruth has joined many student organizations to build her leadership skills. During her freshman year, she joined the Resident Students Association and helped found the first multicultural sorority in Kentucky, Theta Nu Xi Multicultural Sorority Incorporated. When Ruth graduates, she hopes to work for a technology company, such as Google or Apple, either innovating or creating new technologies for consumers.
