Akosua Adjei Boateng, a brilliant student and orphan, recently stunned an audience at the National Theatre when it was revealed that she couldn’t afford to continue her education despite her exceptional academic achievements. Akosua, a former student of Juaso Senior High Technical School, scored grade A in eight subjects in the 2023 WASSCE, earning her a top award from the West African Examinations Council (WAEC).

The National Theatre was filled with applause when Akosua, recognized as the best candidate in the technical program, stepped up to receive her cash prize and certificate from WAEC. However, the excitement quickly turned to shock when it was revealed that she was still at home due to a lack of funds for tertiary education.

In a heartwarming twist, Dr. Eric Nkansah, the Director General of the Ghana Education Service and a native of Juaso, announced his personal commitment to fund Akosua’s education. The audience erupted in applause at Dr. Nkansah’s generous offer. Following the ceremony, Dr. Nkansah invited Akosua and her family to meet with him to discuss the next steps.

Akosua, who dreams of becoming a Civil Engineer, expressed her gratitude and excitement for the opportunity to pursue her dreams. Mr. John Kapi, Head of Public Affairs at WAEC, highlighted Akosua’s situation during the awards ceremony, emphasizing the need for support to help her continue her education.

Thanks to Dr. Nkansah’s intervention, Akosua’s future looks brighter, and she can now look forward to achieving her aspirations.
