Katelyn Agyabeng-Dadzie

Perry Hall High School

Tell us about a teacher, assignment, field trip, or extracurricular activity that had a significant impact on you during your years as a BCPS student?

Coming to America and adapting to the changes was not very easy in my part. But, I went through all that with the support of my counselor; Mr. Mathew Ferenschak. He has always held my back and believed in me. He always tells me, “I believe in you.” This has always motivated me in striving hard to earn good grades in school. He has also supported me in every decision I make concerning my education. I always have my extracurricular activities at my church, Winning Grace International Church. Being part of some wonderful ministries in church such as, the choir ministry and the drama and dance group “The Soul Transformers” (T.S.T.); which has built me socially, psychologically, and spiritually.

During your years as a BCPS student, what did you accomplish that you are most proud of? 

During my years as a BCPS student – which is two years approximately, I have been able to accomplish a lot. Having just this few years to meet all requirements necessary for me to graduate has been one of my goals that I work so hard to accomplish. Also, being a good student from a good home has helped me to be recognized by my counselor as a nominee to spotlight on the BCPS website.

What’s next for you? What are your college or employment plans after graduation?

What’s next? I plan to attend a four-year college, specifically Morgan State University, to pursue a major in business information systems and to earn a bachelor’s degree.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

It is my greatest dream to earn my PhD and be a successful entrepreneur in the next 10 years.

Favorite quote:   My father, Mr. Edward Agyabeng-Dadzie, the wisest man I have ever known, always tells me, “Dwen Hwe Kan” in our Akan language from Ghana, which is translated as “Think And Look Ahead.” This quote has always been a major influence in my decision making and in every step I take because I am always looking ahead of my future.


“Katelyn Agyabeng-Dadzie is a standout, young woman. Just last year, midway in her junior year of high school, she came to the United States from Ghana. Katelyn is hardworking, knows how to advocate for herself and is a natural leader. In her short time here, she has learned about the culture, focused on her academics and has zeroed in on doing whatever she needed to do to become a strong college candidate. 

“Ultimately, Katelyn is a kind and caring young person who is also persistent and focused.  She has a strong passion for excellence and success.  Katelyn has navigated her transition to the United States with grace and precision which leads me to believe her transition to college will be a challenge she meets with ease.  There is no doubt in my mind Katelyn will be a successful adult. She is the kind of person you would hire for a job without a job description because she has the tools and personality to be awesome at whatever she is doing.”
