Our very first Student Showcase was a lot of fun! More than fifty people came out, despite the recent school closures. Ms. Emily Sterling, Camp Fire Columbia's Middle School Program Director, "was incredibly impressed with the amount of authentic youth engagement and voice that Yo Ghana! has put into action" and inspired by our student's "hope, connection and agency."
We are especially grateful to St. Andrew Catholic Church for their hospitality and to Ms. Kiera Asay for bringing her poets from King School. We hope to do it again in March.
The photos are of: Becky Summit, Letter Coordinator of St. Mary's Academy reading an award-winning letter from Ghana; Parfait Ananouko of St. Andrew Nativity School receiving his award for his oral history; Noah Kurzenhauser, Director of our Skype Project; Ibrahim Ibrahim, Director of our Photography Project.
Most of the entries will be from Dr. David Peterson del Mar, the President and co-founder of Yo Ghana!
