Regina Agyare and I have been friends on facebook and twitter for about a year and phone and email friends for a month and half before meeting physically. I got really comfortable speaking with her on phone and had to remind myslef that we hadn’t actually met yet, so I had to behave, lol.
So, on the 29th of May, 2013, she came to Kumasi so we could finalize everything for the Tech Needs Girls Workshop. This of course was going to be my first organized and inspired event. I was excited about that. She arrived at around 9am and found her way to tech Hub. When she came in, I recognized her immediately but strangely enough there was nothing like exchanging pleasantries and screaming around like we ‘girls’ do.
It was more like, ‘hey! you welcome, let me get your bag for you’. ‘How was your journey?, and blah blah blah’. Haha, it was that simple and straight forward. We were to meet the mentors, who were also present (well some of them, others were running late…). They all looked on and said nothing, gosh, we all looked lost, and despite watching all these movies, we couldn’t pick a thing a two about getting excited meeting someone for the first time, smh.
10 minutes later, we started our meeting and brainstormed about what we individually wanted to see at the workshop. We took everyone’s suggestion into consideration and came up with a feasible program. We had a great time together and everyone of those ladies was as smart as this cutie 🙂
The mentors were, Charisma Naa Achere Buxton, Hannah Korankyewaa, Priscilla Tutu Boateng, Hannah Kumah, Audrey Amankwah, Millicent, Cheryl Tdzifa Tetteh and me!, Rasheeda Mandeeya Yehuza, all pending Computer Science Graduates of KNUST.
It felt great having my colleagues take part and think outside the box!
