Nicholas Amponsah

Nicholas AmponsahNicholas Amponsah has always loved working with computers. During his time at Luke C. Moore, he says the he has appreciated the opportunity to complete much of his coursework on the computer through the school’s self-paced model and to build new skills through a class on Microsoft Word. This fall, he will enroll at the University of the District of Columbia where he plans on majoring in computer science. At UDC, Nicholas won’t have to look far for support. He will be enrolling with his brother, Clinton, who is graduating alongside him at Luke C. Moore. Nicholas says that he appreciates the ways that they have been able to help each other when they have faced challenges in their education. After moving from Ghana in 2016, Nicholas says that he was eager to enroll in college, but was not able to because he had not yet earned a diploma. He later enrolled at Luke C. Moore and will be graduating in June as valedictorian of his class, an honor he says he earned through “hard work.” He describes his experience at Luke C. Moore as “perfect” and encourages students who are interested in getting their diploma to explore the options that the school offers. “It’s a very good opportunity for people who maybe were out of school and want to come get their diploma,” says Nicholas. #DCPSGoesToCollege
