Veronica Obenewaa ’26, a cheerful and outgoing student, is currently pursuing a degree in Computer Science at Ashesi University. Despite facing mobility issues due to waist pains, Veronica was determined to complete her Secondary Education at St. Louis Senior High School, where she studied General Science.
During her time at school, she aspired to be protocol prefect and was determined to find a university that was disability friendly. Thankfully, her friend suggested Ashesi University and the Financial Aid Office was able to provide her with a motorised wheelchair to help her navigate campus.
Veronica is now on her way to becoming a cyber security analyst, and is taking each day at a time. She is determined to show people her capabilities, despite her disability. “I am always looking to improve myself as a person,” she shares.
Veronica’s story serves as an inspiration to everyone, and shows us that we can persevere and overcome any obstacle. We wish Veronica all the best in her future endeavours.
