Ghanaian policewoman apologises for recording TikTok video with inmates: "I was only being welcoming"

I basically wanted a platform that would allow me to orient the minds of the girls in my community and region at large on the need to push for the accomplishment of their dreams.
I always say that the fact that you are from a poor background doesn't mean that your back is on the ground.

Ebo talks about preparations towards the eviction show

The graduate of UniMAC-GIJ Ebo opened up about rehearsing for the show and amassing fans to vote aside from the support of family and friends.

I felt burdened; in the sense that so much needed to be done in every form—your delivery, composure, as well as financially—because I was going to battle with equally competent ladies.
I should say that on the very first eviction night, everybody was tensed. The presenters could actually feel the fear in us backstage because it was the moment it really dawned on us that this is a competition and, that night, some of our sisters were going home. However, it is a usual night where we prepare individually to hit the stage to do what we have to do—nothing extra.

Ashanti Region's Ebo delves into her humanitarian project

Although the multifaceted young lady couldn't make it to the finale, she endeavours to help other girls become role models and take up leadership roles in their community.

After GMB, the course that took me to the competition has to be worked on: Lighting the Way for Rural Girls. In that light, individuals and bodies interested in the Girl Child Education topics are welcome to come on board to aid in the successful execution of the project. The girl child today will be the woman tomorrow.
I believe every girl should be who and what she wants to be positively. The project, Lighting the Way for Rural Girls will not only orient the minds of the girl child but equip them with the skills required to achieve their goals.
Training in the sector of beauty, fashion and design, and entrepreneurship, among others, will be offered to girls who do not have the means to pursue their dreams.

Ebo expresses her gratitude to the organisers of the Ghana's Most Beautiful pageant

Most successful female celebrities rose to the limelight after competing in Ghana's Most Beautiful. The organisers and chaperones excellently groom the gorgeous ladies to boost their confidence.

Of course, GMB has given me the platform and the voice. Places I wouldn't have been recognised and accepted a few months ago, those doors are widely opened to me today because of GMB.
Admittedly, I am not the same person I was before joining GMB. My way of life has definitely changed.
I don't eat at informal public places and do not wear certain dresses because, to some extent, some people out there look up to me. However, I keep being my authentic self.

Ashanti Region's Ebo advises the youth

Ebo has this advice for young people:

My advice to the youth, especially young girls, is that everything good takes time. My life is a proof of strength and perseverance.
