Roni Edwin of the Ghana International School (GIS) has become the first Ghanaian student to win a medal at the International Math Olympiad (IMO).

The International Math Olympiad, which has been held for 61 years, is considered the most prestigious math competition in the world.

This year’s competition attracted 616 top high school mathematicians from 105 countries

Roni was Ghana’s top scorer and also achieved the highest score in sub-Saharan Africa.

Since 2016, the U.S. Embassy in Ghana has partnered with MISE Foundation, Ghana to fund the Math Olympiad training program for top high school mathematicians in Ghana.

According to the U.S. Embassy in Ghana, Roni is a direct beneficiary of all these training programs which has now resulted in Ghana’s first medal win.
