"Thank you to the Director of Passports at the @GhanaMFA Ministry of Foreign Affairs Mr Louis Obeng, for making it possible for the brilliant students of Ketaso to get passports to visit Dubai," she said and added a picture to validate the story.

However, she pleaded in an interview that her two colleagues, James Lutterodt and Bright Senyo Gadzo also get supported financially to join her as the journey would be a lonely one if she had to go without them.
Although Ketasco placed third in the national quiz competition, 2021 was the first year in the history of the school that they were able to make it to the grand finale.
Francisca Lamini was also the first girl in eight years to make it to that stage of the competition.
