Work Experience With the WAM Campaign

Everybody was so upset about the placements they got. But I wasn’t. I was counting down the days where I would be shown the true face of business. I’ve known Arnold a long time now, I knew that working for him wasn’t going to be like working with a brother; where they let you off everything . THIS WAS GOING TO BE SHEER HARD WORK. It’s only been a week and I tell you I have done overtime more than your mum has done in a year.

Everyday seeing the same people at the office and telling them ‘Good Morning’ has been a blessing. Really and truly I have enjoyed every moment of it. From first stepping into the Lounge and Arnold got me to do some impossible ‘Thinking outside the box game’ I have actually thought about business differently. Seeing how many people in their business are striving is incredible to watch.

Meeting the gentleman was scary because this guy don’t joke. (Watch out for him though he is coming). I hate communicating, and asking him questions was like asking the security guy for a hug, I repeat he doesn’t joke. He said that he doesn’t like ‘Dreams’ because you are not going to fulfill them. You have to think BIG and map it out.

My second meeting was with Andy Ayim, and he was cool. But until he opened his mouth, he wasn’t sugar coating anything. The things this guy said was like pure water ( Not the water that is flowing in the Thames oo) he was not hiding anything, he was just being clear. He was serious.

My third meeting (Yes i had like 3 meetings this week) was with Samuel Mensah. He is Arnold’s Genius. His mastermind. His thinker. But he had some REALLY good ideas and I enjoyed that meeting the most, because we came up with some good ideas (you better watch out). Then Joseph came and things got jokey because that guy comes out with the most random things ever. It’s so funny.

Thursday. Thursday. Thursday. I was hoping this day wouldn’t come. If I tell you I hate socialising with people that I don’t know, well now you know. Samuel Kasumu founder of Elevations Network. Top man right there and his wife Barbara, Chief Executive of Elevation Networks. Now that is hard because business with your spouse can either break you or make you, and it made them. Not everyday you get to meet Ken Livingstone. He has more humor than me, and that’s a lot. It was an interesting day and I had to network with people for WAM, but i was more successful than what i thought it would be. But all in all this week has been one of the best weeks I’ve had this year.

And obviously i’m the Youth Ambassador for MeFiRi Ghana.  

Work Experience Monday 8th July: So boring

I was making my way to work thinking it was going to be so fun where I could do what we normally do: Data input, Lunch, Blogging and then Promoting. But no, the day was going to be filled of research and even more research. I hate researching for things that seem impossible, how am I mean’t to find a Ghanaian that is under the age of 35 and works in the Technology industry that is based in Ghana?

I was so bored.

Normally I work at full speed and I knew doing something this boring would drag me down, so after 2 hours I only found 15 companies that are Ghanaian in the world and had different genres. Boring.

But in every business there is the boring stuff and I just had to do them all yesterday. Lets hope today is better.

Work Experience: Tuesday 9th July 2012

Today is the 7th day I have been to work and i wasn’t so bored today. I tweeted got a couple retweets, I’ve been tweeting certain people on Twitter and they have been replying back, but luckily enough Today wasn’t as bad as yesterday.

Today has been a day of thinking and trying to promote Me FiRi Ghana on Twitter, and I’m not going to lie, it was fun. It’s been quite loud in the lounge today and at times you just wanted to tell them to shh, but the professional side of you always takes over.

Well today in all has been ok. Not as fun as the other days, but kind of fun.

Work Experience: Getting to speak to Sarkodie.

R2Bees-ft.-Sarkodie-Bayla-Trap-Official-Video-620x346

As the day couldn’t get any better, Arnold and I went to our next meeting with Dennis. The founder of Akwaaba UK, yeah him, you’re now thinking ‘lucky girl right’ :-), Oh yeah I am. We were discussing the events coming up that Akwaaba UK will be doing in the UK and Ghana, and they have some good plans…

We were also discussing the problems Ghana have and how it’s effecting their business. But then suddenly I knew something, earlier I was tweeting Sarkodie with the Me FiRi Ghana Twitter account wishing him a Happy Birthday. Then Dennis (now my UNCLE Dennis) said that Sarkodie was coming back from Dubai and he was now in London, and I said “What? He’s spending his birthday in London?” Then Uncle Dennis said “It’s not his birthday” (I don’t blame him Ghanaian’s hardly remember their own birthday’s) and then he called him.

He called him and I waited for him to start talking. I just knew he was going to keep talking to him and ask him “Is it your Birthday today?” eventually he did and yeah he handed me the phone saying to him “You have a fan that wants to say Happy birthday“. I looked at Arnold and swallowed my heart.

Now listen I’ve seen so many Celebrities in my life, from Will Smith coming to my school, to Fuse ODG sitting next to me, not even realising. But this one I was proper scared. I don’t know why.

Is the Ghanaian Culture hindering Ghana’s development?

Earlier this year we saw the following demonstration taking place outside the Ghanaian Embassy.

Make of it and the entire situation as you will but the question we would like to understand is this:

 

Buy abilify 2mg price online from an official certified pharmacy, OVERNIGHT Shipping, Exclusive & competitive discount prices, express shipping & discrete packaging. QUESTION:

To what extent could the Ghanaian Culture (as in traditional Ghanaian life experiences eg. Do not question a person in authority, do not question your elder even if they are blatantly wrong ) be stifling the development of the country ?

Black Satellites through to semis!

cymbalta and citalopram 40mg Black Satellites through to Semi finals of U20 World Cup after seven goal thriller!

 

Ghana v USA: Group A - FIFA U-20 World Cup Turkey 2013

It was arguably the game of the tournament so far – a seven goal thriller which resulted in defending champions Ghana victorious over Chile in extra time.

The Black Stars twice had to come from behind in a pulsating match in Turkey. Ghana had taken the lead early in the game through zanaflex 8 mg Moses Odjer only for Chile to storm back and led 2-1. But fortunately Ebenezer Assifuah was on hand to equalise. The match ended 2-2 after 90 minutes but striker http://modagami.com/price-of-hyzaar-100-25.html Angelo Henriquez had put Chile 3-2 up in the eighth minute of extra time.  The Black Satellites came back again when Seidu Salifu equalized in the 113th after being set up by Clifford Aboagye.

Then with virtually the last kick of the game, Assifuah got his second goal to win it for the Black Satellites.

The Impressive thing about Ghana’s performance was that at times the Black Satellites looked physically and mentally beaten. However they summoned the stamina and sheer will to score vital goals at crucial times to ensure they ended up eventual winners. It seems coach Sellas Tetteh has the Midas touch in getting a response out of his players when it matters. He is now on course of repeating the feat of 2009 with a team who started badly at the beginning of the competition.

Earlier in the tournament, Ghana narrowly escaped elimination after losing group matches against Spain and France before advancing on goal difference following a 4-1 win against the United States.

After the match Tetteh said it’s a wonderful feeling for us to progress to the semi-final,”

“We started from a very low point. The progression of this team is wonderful.”

Ghana will now face France on Wednesday for a place in the final and after last night’s heroics they should have every confidence of getting through. Iraq – who beat South Korea – will meet Uruguay in the other semi.

In the Black Satellites we trust!
