GMB 2021: Wedaga from the Upper East emerges as the night’s Most Eloquent.
Wedaga wowed the judges with her fiery depiction of her heroine and mentor, Mrs Clara Kwolaga Beeri Kasser-Tee, earning her the Most Eloquent award.
Princess Diana Wedaga Ayongo of the Upper East area brought the audience on a lengthy journey to meet Mrs Beeri Kasser-Tee, the irresistible daughter of the country. We learned of the various influential actions from the ripple effect of a woman from the heart of Navrongo via Wedaga’s impassioned and grandiloquent speech.
“Women are said to be a tremendous tool for change,” they remark. My greatest motivation and heroine in my quest to become a lawyer is a woman I refer to as the Lioness of Ghana’s Upper East Region. She is a 360-degree woman.
Mrs Beeri Kasser-Tee was born to Mr and Mrs Beeri in the village of Navrongo, according to Wedaga. She is the eldest of five children who aspires to be a champion for the rights of her community’s less fortunate. She also wanted to leave her imprint on the country’s progress.
“Many people warned her that her ambitions were too lofty and costly for a lady to pursue. She didn’t pay attention to them because they had an opinion. Yes, we can, as Barack Obama famously stated. As a result, she persisted and was accepted into the University of Ghana Law School. Clara’s educational background is impressive. She is the first woman from my region to receive the Honorary John Mensah Sarbah Memorial Award.
Mrs Clara Kowlaga Beeri Kasser-Tee, according to Wedaga, has a long list of accomplishments, including representing the country on international issues and serving as a role model for CAMFED in 2012. She also created an efficient tax collection system that was approved by the Ghanaian judiciary and the Ghana Revenue Authority.
“My heroine has her own set of problems. Her father died just a week before she was to graduate from the University of Ghana Law School. Clara advocates for the establishment of Day Care Centers and paternity leave to alleviate the load placed on working mothers. A healthy home, she feels, contributes to a healthy nation.”
