One more reason to join the Peace Corps

Version 4
    Out of love for soccer, necessity compelled me to invent a small scale soccer game - using raffia brook sticks and beads taken from my mother's bead collection. But as the years rolled by, my passion for soccer faded as I grew older and found other hobbies like music, writing, biking, gardening and hunting more exciting.

    In the two final years of my secondary education in Northern Ghana, I had the privilege to learn from an American Peace Corp volunteer called Brain Arbic. This American was exceptional in his approach to teaching. He taught us physics in a very practical way and made us clearly understand how to apply our physics education to solve daily challenges.

    Armed with the fundamentals of physics, I knew that passing my physics final exam was not going to be the end of my interest in learning and applying what I have learned as an aspiring scientist.

    When Brain Arbic brought a mini magnetic chess board game to his physics class one afternoon, little did he know that he was about to change my life. Immediately, fresh memories of my childhood soccer board game began to resurface and I started to develop it in my mind, but the road was long and my journey was undoubtedly steep, even as I went through countless huddles to achieve my goal as an inventor.

    This is a summary of how this innovative board game product was invented and developed through the kind hand of America. Have fun playing your static soccer board game and don't forget to share the moment with your friends and family, because when America shares, the world changes.
