Welcome to the Personality Show where we get close and personal with the body of PENSA-KNUST. This month we meet our very own student from Editorial Committee offering BA Geography and Rural Development. Let’s get ourselves inspired by what she has for us.
Who is behind Weber Mary?
I was born in Kwahu in the Eastern Region of Ghana, Nkwatia to be precise on the 10th of February, 1998. I am the first of four children of my parents. I attended St. Peters primary and JHS and continued at Nkwatia Presbyterian Senior High School. I admire people who are into the kingdom business and at the same time focused on their goals in life.
Share with us your experience in the second cycle institution?
Weber Mary: Nkwatia Presbyterian wasn’t my dream school, but I ended up there anyways and it has never disappointed me. Our teachers were very strict and disciplined and that had impact on most of the students in the school including myself. I wasn’t the best but I was a little bit above average. I met a lot of friends from different background with different character traits making me adjust to people of different character. Spiritually, it was normal. All together school was quite interesting.
KNUST was just a miracle, I never thought of coming to the university. Back in SHS, all I wanted to do was get enrolled in the nursing training after school but things worked together and I am right here in KNUST.
Weber Mary, kindly tell us about BA Geography and Rural Development?
Geography is quite demanding than what I did way back in SHS but I am getting acclimatized to it. It comprises of a lot like climatology, geomorphology, hydrology, human geography, cartography, among others.
How has campus been from first year to second year?
I met a lot of friends I knew before coming here and that made me adjust to the environment quite early. I had interesting roommates too. Academically, year one was very hectic and challenging because we were being exposed to new stuffs but now it is getting better.
What can you tell us about PENSA-KNUST?
PENSA-KNUST is more or less like a family. PENSA leaders especially those in my hall have been great leaders, always available for everyone. They did quite a good job. In all PENSA-KNUST has positively changed most aspects of my life in terms of my spiritual life.
Amongst all the committees, why did you decide to choose Editorial Committee?
In first year, I never thought of joining a committee till one midweek I met a lady who talked to me about editorial committee. I had interest in the activities of the committee so I met the editor and then I became a member of editorial committee.
What is your take on this year’s theme and focus?
Becoming like Christ: We become like Christ when we reflect Christ in all aspect of our lives. It means building a personal relationship with Christ, walking with him and becoming very close to Him to the point where everything of Christ is inherent in you.
Abiding in His Word: It is doing everything that is right in the sight of God according to what His word says.
Which part of the Bible really speaks to you?
1st Thessalonians 5:24, “He who calls you is faithful, he will surely do it.”
Who is your favourite Bible character?
Esther. She trusted God in the hard time when the Jews were supposed to be killed. She devoted herself and fasted for her people in the time of serious crisis. She also displayed a character of bravery.
Who is your favorite member/leader in PENSA-KNUST?
Former Independence Hall Overseer, Elijah Fuseni. I’m very critical about his work with respect to church activities related to the hall. He has a unique personality of disciplining you and at the same time making you feel happy. He is also very caring and devoted to his work.
Who inspires you?
Apostle Opoku Onyinah. His ministry and devotion manifests the work of God and that really inspires me.
Which sporting activity do you enjoy and what do you enjoy during your leisure time?
I enjoy playing Netball. At my leisure times, I read, listen to music, dance and watch movies.
What is your vision and mission in life?
I envision to be the source of help to needy people in the society and the mouthpiece of challenged people.
My mission is to build my Christian, academic, social and financial life in order to achieve my vision.
How did you become born again?
I went to church one day and after a very powerful sermon I gave my life to Christ fully.
What should we expect from you in the next 5 years?
I hope to have been done with my first degree, be employed in a reputable organization and a fully independent woman.
Are you in a relationship?
What is your take on people who are single on campus and feel anxious about it?
Being in a relationship in a nice thing but if you are not prepared for it, there’s no need rushing into one.
What do you look out for in your future spouse?
God-fearing, caring, and humble. He should be someone with a great vision and very handsome.
What’s your motivational quote in life?
Never give up, great things take time.
Please do you have any testimony to share with us?
My life is a full testimony.
Do you have any proposal for PENSA-KNUST/ improvement you want to see?
PENSA-KNUST should focus a little bit on kids. They have been going for outreaches to secondary schools. That is good but you will realize there are a lot of children around Ayeduase. PENSA-KNUST can organize an evangelism and talk to the children. Also, the Computer Committee should be consistent in making flyers for each and every event. Also, the Technical Team in collaboration with the Editorial Team should make sure they bring an inspiring Christian movie for the week since the youth nowadays are more interested in the things they see than what they read.
What advice do you have for the youth?
The youth should never give up, they should trust God too much to give up and also to focus on their dreams.
Thank you very much for your time. God bless you.
