Afatsawo Beatrice Emefa is my name . I hail from Bator in the Volta region of Ghana but reside in Nsawam in the Eastern Region. I come from a family of five (5). Emefa is the eldest of her two other siblings . Bright Agbenyegah Afatsawo and Berlinda Seyram Afatsawo are the names of my siblings .
I had my pre-secondary and secondary education at Good Foundation International and Adonten Senior High School respectively .
During my Senior Secondary school days, I served as the Class Captain of the General Science Class ( Science 2) . Emefa also was elected as the Senior Girl’s Prefect of Adonten Senior High school during the 2016/2017 academic years where she discharged her duties with due diligence.
KNUST campus have been a great area for investing in knowledge as a person . I remember been told by my Communication Skills lecturer , Mrs. Zennia Osei that , The University; is a university City . Life on campus have been challenging due to the variety of lifestyles and personalities I encounter each day and sometimes not knowing how to handle the differences of these individuals . What keeps me going is I take it one at a time . I constantly count my blessings and my successes and leave the rest in the Hands of the Almighty God.
Emefa comes naturally as an outspoken person . I am a child of God . I am a Christian . Getting the opportunity to be a Class Representative of the Mathematics Class in KNUST . During the 2020/2021 academic year, I served as a Senator of the Senate of College of Science ,KNUST where I contributed my quota in decisions that go a long way to affect the lifestyle of students in the college .
I have heard about Christ from my childhood days but I knew Christ during the COVID – 19 Pandemic time where I needed answers to some questions about my Faith and I had them .
Joining the Bible Study Wing is a decision I made and have not regretted I did . I joined the wing in my quest to increase my knowledge of God. The wing is one that cares like a family and a dynamic one. Our Sunday services have been Christ – Centered , Exciting and educational to me . The time for church has not been a problem for attending service but of late , I sometimes don’t wake up early for service. In my perspective , the NUPS-G KNUST Local is a wonderful place to belong . It is fast growing , adapting to modern technologies and family -like.
My admission to the university here wasn’t smooth . After I did not get any of my choices of programmes ,The option given me was to attend Senior High School all over again . I prayed and also asked my colleagues who were also processing their admission forms at the time what to do . My prayers was answered and I also got admission to read B.Sc.Mathematics in KNUST . We mostly do not know it all and must sometimes rely on others and it is perfectly fine . Prayers work .
In the area of academics , I tend to keep the perspective of taking Mathematics as a challenge , meaning we tackle it one at a time . It can be overwhelming sometimes . YouTube videos are very helpful to me. My colleagues who do well in academics also step in to help mostly . In area of my spiritual life , I tend to pray often for strength and Knowledge for life from God Almighty . Making my wing meetings, church programmes and activities a priority has also helped in my relationship with God .
Emefa likes to watch thriller movies , read books and watch recipes . I enjoy spending time with friends and family . In my opinion , boyfriend -girlfriend relationship is not bad .
Refined through Intimacy , we as believers are not perfect but entreated to remain honest with God through Prayer. We can only be refined when we abide in Him ( John 15:5 ) .
My final words to every one reading this is , Be courageous in life . God is on your side and cheering you up all the time . It may not seem like it most of the time but it is the truth .Be kind to yourself and surely victory will be yours . See you at the top .
