The fifty-three-year-old mother, wife and final year student of Keta Senior High Technical School hails from Whuti, a town located in the Anloga District of the Volta Region of Ghana.
Aunty Comfort, who is a mother of six just like any other student with burning ambition has dreams of becoming a lawyer and a politician someday. Not even her age could be a barrier. Her classmates who are old enough to be her grandchildren speak fondly of her. They narrate how serious and study-conscious she is.
During a one-on-one chat with rymcitigh.com, Aunty Comfort revealed that even though there were challenging moments when she decided to go back to school, she never paid heed to them. She also recounted the important roles that her family has played in this journey of acquiring high academic credentials. To her, she would forever be grateful for the love and support shown her.
She also used the opportunity to admonish parents to make sure that they leave a lasting legacy by educating their children, especially the girls. This she said, is the only way by which they could be empowered and recognized in the larger society.
The General Arts student completed Korpeyia Bloomfield Basic School in 2018 and she is privileged to be part of the Free Senior High School education policy.
She will be sitting for her WASSCE this year.
