My Story of Inspiration
“The prospect of occupying leadership positions and impacting lives in the process has always been my lifelong dream.''
I believed that setting the tone at the top and driving change through effective leadership was the best way to help people and encourage girls to aspire to be more.
This singular thought pushed me to aspire and achieve leadership roles such as Head Prefect in Archbishop Porter Girls Senior High School and Deputy Electoral Commissioner in University of Ghana Business School (UGBS).
Fast forward to my final year in University, I came across Yielding Accomplished African Women (Yaa W) through a friend at a time when authority began to mean less to me because of all the unfulfilled standards I had set for myself. She encouraged me to brave through the interview, go through the program, try unpacking my vision through Yaa W’s lens for a change; and I never regretted ever since.
At Yaa W, I found a second family, a higher depth of exposure for leadership, and confidence to believe that my efforts can contribute in a large way to a more powerful view of girls and women in society. That my quota mattered in the grand scheme of things and others as well, as long as you believe and work at achieving those dreams in the right manner.
The grueling training program reminded me of how indispensable teaming, hard work and determination are in any project or workplace scenario (ingredients to success) and after living by these standards, I was rewarded with multiple work offers at prestigious organizations after graduating” - Odette Nana Braso Akwaboah
