The West African Examinations Council has named a former Wesley Girls' Senior High School and Ashesi student, Nana Adwoa Sereboo, as one of the top three students in the 2019 West African Secondary School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
More than 346,000 pupils registered for 2019 to participate in the widely taken WASSCE in West Africa.
According to ashesi.edu.gh, Nana Adwoa Sereboo, a former student of Wesley Girls Senior High School, was named second overall best student and was also awarded the best Business programme candidate.
Despite being encouraged by her high school teachers to aim for it, the notification that she was to be awarded came as a surprise to Nana Adwoa.
Her primary goal, all through her final year, had been to graduate with strong enough grades to successfully get into a good university.

"I wasn’t dwelling on awards nearly as much as getting into a good university after high school," she explained.
The genius added that she was motivated to do well enough so she could qualify into Ashesi to join her sister, who is also a student at the university.
Her parents, Daniel and Paulina Sereboo, are equally happy that both daughters got into Ashesi.
Now in her first year at Ashesi, Nana Adwoa is looking forward to exploring a broad set of interests.
Nana Adwoa does not have plans that are cast in stone yet because she believes she is 'multipotentialite' and she finds new things every day.
