Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
A seven-month pregnant WASSCE candidate and a schoolmate responsible for the pregnancy have been writing this year’s WASSCE examination at Mansoman Senior high School in Amansie West of the Ashanti Region.
A report that was gathered by Kessbenfm.com and sighted by YEN.com.gh indicates that the two are students but not minors.
Their names are withheld but the gentleman is 20 years old while the report mentions that his partner is 18 years old.
Speaking in an interview, the headmaster of the school, Ampofo Nuako, revealed that five of their students have been unable to sit for this year's WASSCE, excluding the two students in question.
The lady revealed what gave her the courage to mingle with her colleagues and write her exams while pregnant.
“I’m in my seventh month, and it may not be advisable for a student to do what I did but since it has happened, I can’t say I won’t write because of shyness. Because of my future, I’m not ashamed of writing with my pregnancy”, she said.
Getting pregnant as a student is an event that is capable of shattering dreams and causes many to quit schooling but this lady's story shows that life in education can proceed despite the challenges that come with the pregnancy.
In another interesting report, Janet Abena Quainoo, a Ghanaian lady has narrated how she was unemployed after completing her national service but kept serving for five good years.
In a conversation with YEN.com.gh's Edward Asare, the lady indicates that she had her national service at the State Broadcasting House, of the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation.
After her service ended and she did not get employed, Janet decided to still go to work every day as normally required and keep up her reporting work without pay.
