“I don’t know whether they were joking or not but one of the things they wrote was ‘she’s too hot, we can’t concentrate in class’ and I didn’t know because it’s anonymous,” she said.

She said Ashesi University take the appraisals seriously and they are usually filled by students and sent straight to the Head of Department.

She said she found out about the review when her Head of Department sent her an email requesting to see her.

In the meeting, Penelope Brooke Thompson said the Head of Department beat around the bush with pleasantries and small talk, before letting the cat out of the bag and told her about what the students had written.

She said she was taken aback when the Head of Department told her that they would rather have the students listen to her than to look at her.

The beautiful woman who looks younger than her age recounted that some of the male students in her class communicated with her as if she was their girlfriend.

Her surprise was borne out of the fact that there were other employees at Ashesi University who were curvier and thicker than her and wore short skirts while she always wore trousers and shirts.

She further stated that despite wearing a fake engagement ring it did not stop the advances because some men still went after married women.
