Big Dream: Obed was born and raised in Ghana. Before securing a visa for immigration to the United States, he worked in different agricultural and service industries, inspiring his interest in economics. His experiences and leadership at Bronx Community College, where he has served in student government, contribute to his focus on developing himself as a leader and resource for financial literacy and economic development in struggling communities. Ultimately, Obed would like to establish a foundation that provides financial literacy help to minorities in low-income communities.
