It was the 29th of April 2023, a day that I had long been anticipating. As I stood in the college auditorium of Foso College of Education, Assin Foso, it was with a feeling of immense joy and satisfaction that I handed over the baton to my successor, Miss Melvina Bilson, as the vice president for the Western, Western North, and Central Sector of the Teacher Trainees Association of Ghana (TTAG – WEC).

Throughout my tenure, I worked tirelessly to achieve various tasks that I set out for myself. I sensitized freshers on TTAG, organized skills training for our members, introduced the WEC Leaders Avenue for further sensitization, organized a one of its kind Leadership Workshop for over 200 student leaders within my jurisdiction, and nurtured some of them to take up positions of leadership in the sector, among others.

During my tenure, I served as the secretary to the Vice Presidents conference (Vipcof), which included the National Vice President and the five sector vice Presidents. I was also privileged to be part of the publicity committee as the secretary and served on the sponsorship committee as a member.

However, despite my best efforts, there was still more on my plate that could not be achieved due to time constraints. Nonetheless, I take pride in my beliefs about leadership, which is investing oneself in others. It is with optimism that I leave the post to my successor in the hope that she will continue from where I left off.

Reflecting on my tenure as Vice President, I give all the glory to the most high God for lifting me from the lowest ebb to the position of Mighty men. None of my achievements would have been possible without His grace and guidance.

I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to everyone who supported me in this journey. To my beloved teacher trainees, I am grateful for the support and trust that you placed in me, and I am glad that I met your expectations. To my family and friends, I thank you for your unwavering support and encouragement.

As I step down, I am confident that posterity will be kind to me, and I look forward to making contributions to society in other ways.
