The young resilient female student first gained admission to Ola College of Education in 2017 and made history when she was crowned the face of Ola College of Education for the 2018/2019 academic year.

Erica Arthur served as the president of the Science, Mathematics and Technology Students Association in the same academic year.

She earned a leadership role when she was elected as the SRC vice-president and the women’s commissioner of Ola College of Education and doubled as the vice-president of the Teacher Trainees’ Association of Ghana, Western and Central sector for the 2018/2019 TTAG year.

As a young lady, she completed her basic education at Wisdom Preparatory school at Enchi, Western North region. And later attained her senior high school education at Armed Forces Senior High Technical School in 2013.

Erica hopes that her achievements would urge other young women, especially girls, to pursue their dreams.

Meanwhile, of what has become popular as Ghana’s most 'powerful' deity, the Nogokpo shrine, evokes fear and leaves many skins crawling with shivers at the mere mention of the name.

Despite being shrouded in mystery, Nogokpo, is a small village in Volta region, Ghana, and means ''stay in peace''.

However, peace does not mean freedom; one cannot access the entire township freely because there are areas that individuals are not permitted to access wearing either shoes or sandals.
