A social media user with the Facebook name, Andrews Nuonibe Larkai, has given an emotional narration about how a woman who had faced neglect has become a lawyer.
In a Facebook post, Larkai recounted that Esther Akua Gyamfi, who made history as Ghana's first-ever International and Comparative Disability Law and Policy lawyer with a disability had faced rounds of rejections from society after she became disabled at the age of two (2).
Recounting now-barrister Esther Akua Gyamfi's emotional journey, Larkai wrote, ''she became paralysed at the age of two (2). Doctors, nurses, friends, and family advised her [mother] to get rid of her because she would have to babysit her for the rest of her life. But in all these, her mother's response was: "everything works together for good to those who love God and are called according to His purpose.''
He disclosed that eleven (11) primary schools denied then young Esther Akua Gyamfi admittance due to her disability.
Her mother, however, took up the responsibility and homeschooled her, according to Larkai.
Eventually, the primary education Akua Gyamfi received from home propelled her to become the first International and Comparative Disability Law and Policy lawyer with disability in Ghana.
