Hi, I'm Vayant, an aspiring economist from Ghana - Video Transcript

Back to video


Vayant, Secondary Student, Ghana Education my power. I’m Vayant, a secondary student from Mfantsiman district, Ghana. For me, education has really changed my life. It has helped me realize my dreams and to plan my future well.

Now, I can relate well with others, and take up leadership roles without fear. I can also now read, write and talk confidently because I have been educated. 

It is my dream to become an economist in future. I would like to help solve issues relating to my economy, to aid development in my country. Through this, I can empower young women to be confident and take up leadership roles in their schools and societies.

To all girls in the world, stay focused, learn hard, and make sure you take every opportunity that comes your way. Thank you. Bye bye.
