Christiana Obeng Badu
Christiana Obeng Badu is a form 3 student of St Monicaâ€™s Senior High School who was nominated and selected for sponsorship in 2014. Despite her impressive academic performance, she would have been unable to further her education if not for our Scholarship programme.
Christiana, was initially hesitant when she heard about the Scholarship scheme. Her initial reaction was the fear of her father getting annoyed about her decision to apply though she knew her parents could not afford to pay for her fees.
She decided to discuss with her parents on a mid-term break and her father agreed. On her return to school, her form master accompanied her to see Father Nsenkyire (The School Chaplain and representative of the foundation at St. Monica’s Senior High School). The deadlines for filling the forms had passed but with persuasion from her form master, Father Nsenkyire agreed.
Christiana’s joy upon qualifying for the scholarship was indescribable. She was for a moment absent minded when she was informed and so excited upon hearing the news. She said a prayer to thank the Lord for the opportunity.
Christiana believes that the scholarship has brought her a step closer to her ambition to become a Nutritionist in the near future
Here’s what Christiana had to say; “I am grateful to the Alice Dede Bright and Needy Memorial Foundation for supporting me and I promise to continue studying hard to make the Foundation and my parents proud.”
Her expectation is that the foundation will continue to sponsor her through her tertiary education.
