As a quiet and unassuming child, Vera-Ann Yaa Ahemba Sackey joined the Morgan International Community School (MICS) at Grade 7 in January 2014 at age of 12.
At a point in time, her academic prowess has been called into question but her teachers and parents encouraged her
Out of the large volumes of entries received from applicants for this year’s scholarship, Ms. Vera-Ann Yaa Ahemba Sackey from Ghana emerged the only student chosen from West Africa.
Her selection for the prestigious award, according to her instructors, did not come on silver platter but through determination, dint of hard work and perseverance she demonstrated over the years.
MICS education identified and developed her academic abilities, talents and leadership skills. The school also offered several opportunities for self-development. This has resulted in making Vera-Ann the achiever that she’s become.
We wish her well in her academic journey for excellence and a joyful stay in the University of Toronto in the coming months.
