Daniel Tiah Ankrah


Daniel is in his 3rd year pursuing a specialized degree in International Development. He is argumentative and a fire starter. He also has a strong interest in snakes to which some people may find weird and disturbing. Although Daniel is registered as a domestic student in the school files, he is an international student at heart since he spent most of his childhood years in Ghana. Blessed with his situation, he is able to connect with both students from different grounds and act as a liaise between them. He is affiliated with GSA (Ghanaian Student Association) and IDSAY (International Development Student Association at York). Daniel is excited to be on this year’s team as the treasurer and stands strong to help encourage a serene environment for teaching and learning and hopes for your help. “Together we stand, Divided we fall”.
