Ghanaian aspiring lawyer and YouTuber Ama Governor, born Elorm Ama Ababio, has garnered attention online following her comments about the country's economic crisis and her sexuality.
The outspoken lawyer-in-waiting stated on Joy News on September 23, during the #OccupyJulorbihouse protests in Accra, that her sexual orientation is no grounds to bar her from becoming a lawyer.

She explained that the petition that resulted in her original refusal included charges made by a concerned citizen that she was unfit to be called to the Bar, which was later proven to be baseless.
''They gave two fallacious grounds and one insufficient ground, which all got thrown out, and basically, I won in conclusion.
"And the last one is the fact of my sexuality that I sleep with women. I said that is not a lie; I do sleep with women; that is a fact. But it is not grounds for me to not be called to the Bar, and that is it. My sexuality, I am queer, I am pansexual; yes, I sleep with women," she said.

I just watched Ama Governor's interview, and I will not think twice about hiring her if I get into trouble.
See am and en attitude … Ama Governor, you are there at the #OccupyJulorbiHouse because of your LGBTQ advocacy and coz you were denied entry into the Ghana Bar, not because you care about Ghanaians .. you can huff and puff. You are never entering.. mark it.
Ama Governor, I saw you yesterday at the protest, & I was so happy to see you for the first time. I wanted to say hi, but then I didn't want to risk being snubbed since we weren't familiar. I caught a smile staring at you from afar. I'm a fan, by the way.
The fact Ama Governor mentioned she's pansexual doesn't mean she sleeps with bread; please go and do ur homework. I love her resilience through all these, how she kept a neutral stance since March, knowing she was finally getting what was hers and never said an ounce of the word.
