My Name is Sheriff Joof, a final year student at the University of The Gambia, major in Economics and minor in Finance. I’m one of the lucky scholars of AforA (Academy for Academics). An aspired economist.
Fall semester 2016:
Spring semester 2017
It never gets any easier as you proceed but the was fruitful. I did five courses, Investment Analysis, Business Corporate, Financial Statement Analysis, Taxation 1 and Public Finance, being my only major out the five. My first part assessments were ok on average. Score 20 and over in almost all my courses out of 25 except for Public Finance which I 5 points below the 20 points. The other part of my assessment were all writeups and some quantitative assignments with some analysis involve. I’m hopeful that they will turn out well. The exams where not bad either so over all I’m optimistic!
Fall semester 2017
The AforA scholarship means so much to me. There were times I had to skip semesters because the means were not there, but with the help of AforA, now every semester counts! Thanks to AforA I’m edging closer to achieving my dreams
I have just concluded a group project that I have been working on together with my group members the past weeks comparing the banking system of France to that of The Gambia, and we made a presentation on it. I’m currently working on another project on savings and credit management. Had four assignments on international economics, completed and submitted the three working on the fourth assignment. Also had a test on Management Acounting last week having another on Auditing by the end of the week. Midterm has just begun so a lot of tests, assignments and projects will be lining up in coming weeks
