Earlier, YEN.com.gh reported 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.''
