Meet Akosua Boateng, the 8A’s student whose dream of becoming engineer nearly got truncated

Akosua Adjei Boateng an orphan, emerged as the overall best student in the technical programme at the just-ended WAEC distinction award in Accra last Thursday

A former student of Juaso Senior High Technical School, who nearly gave up on her dreams of becoming a civil engineer due to financial constraints after securing 8A’s, has been given the opportunity to now further her education.

Akosua Adjei Boateng an orphan, emerged as the overall best student in the technical programme at the just ended WAEC distinction award in Accra last Thursday.

Her plight came to light after the awards when it emerged, she could not further her education.

Speaking to Kwaku Nhyira-Addo on the Asaase Breakfast Show on Tuesday (18 June), Boateng said she had lost hope of furthering her education due to financial constraint.

“I had no plans of furthering my education because I didnt have any hope from anywhere,” she said.

Meanwhile, the director general of the GES, Dr Eric Nkansah (also a native of Juaso) has confirmed he will sponsor Akosua Adjei Boateng to pursue a career in engineering.

“I will be sponsoring Akosua’s tertiary education so she can study the course of her choice.
As a native of Juaso, I was proud to learn that Akosua Adjei Boateng, a former student of Juaso Senior High Technical School, Juaso-Ashanti, emerged as the overall best student in the technical programme.”

“However, hearing that Akosua, an orphan, after securing 8As, has been unable to continue her education at the tertiary level due to financial constraints saddened me,” he said.

“During the WAEC Distinction Awards last Wednesday, I pledged to sponsor her tertiary education. Later that day, I hosted Akosua, her immediate family, and the Head of Juaso Senior High Technical School in my office to understand her career choices and next steps further,” Nkansah posted on Facebook.
