There are many women with the requisite capacity to participate in nation building but have fallen back and not shown interest in the governance process. Those who are given the opportunity to assume key positions, the country benefits because they are good managers, and as such manages the resources of the country well.
Hence, as an effort to get more women into leadership, Change Agent Media celebrates women who are performing in leadership to encourage, inspire and motivate other women to assume positions as a way to contribute to national development.
Today, Change Agent Media celebrates Miss Emelia Ama Mesetorwo who started her basic education from Living God Preparatory School, Akweteman and later moved to Achimota Preparatory school to continue from class six after which she furthered to OLA girls senior high school, Ho to study Business.
After three years in the senior high school, she became the house perfect for ST. Cecelia house and a member of the drama club due to her hard work.
Due to her determination to climb the academic ladder, she continued to the tertiary institution to read Accounting Education in the University of Education, Winneba-Kumasi.
Believing in this philosophy “Every great tree was first a seed, tiny and probably looked insignificant” she started with some leadership positions particularly in her second and third year in the University where she delivered significantly.
Ms. Mesetorwo served with the chaplaincy as the secretary for the 2017/2018 administration and as a course representative for her class. She also used the media to address some peculiar issues on campus as a host of a Christian programme on campus.
She served as the General Secretary and an acting financial secretary for the Universal Light Media (UNILIME) Foundation chapter on her campus. With her hard work and significant contribution to the growth of the Organisation, she was given an appointment to work as the financial secretary at the Regional level, Ashanti Region.
She has empowered herself consistently by attending leadership conferences and seminars including Champions’ Conference held at UCC in 2016, Strategic Leadership Initiative Training (SLIT) Africa organized in partnership with UNILIME Foundation, among Leadership seminars organized by the UEW-K chaplaincy.
As a young tertiary student in the final year who believes that great societal changes emerges from small and most often called, “insignificant impacts” she has worked as a volunteer in several Organisations.
According to her, she likes reading and watching inspiring videos as leisure. Also, she loves to develop creative ideas with friends as part of her leisure to generate ideas to solve some issues in the society.
She is passionate about change and she is working so hard to become one of Ghana’s youth who would be recognised as a catalyst for change and global development; not just change but a positive and impactful change that would reflect on posterity and generations. Her inspiration is that a man was born as a problem solver so let’s do just that.
Congratulations! keep inspiring the youth with selfless service to humanity.
