Welcome to the Personality Showwhere we get close and personal with the body of PENSA-KNUST. This month we meet our very own student from Ushering Committeeoffering B.A Religious Studies. let’s get ourselves inspired by what she has for us.
Who is behind Yamoah Veronica?
I am the fourth born of six children of my parents. I attended Gyampoh preparatory school and completed at Buduburam. I then furthered my education at Potsin T.I Ahmadiyya Senior High School and upon completion, I gained admission to study here in KNUST. I am a disciplined lady and very cautious with friends. I am an extrovert.
Share with us your experience in the second cycle institution?
Because my school was an Islamic school, the environment wasn’t that friendly. In one way or the other it hindered my Christian life because of the restrictions. I also had a lot of friends in school because I was an extrovert.
Frankly, I didn’t choose KNUST. I was given admission into KNUST as a Mastercard scholar.
Yamoah Veronica, kindly tell us about B.A Religious Studies?
It is a course that helps students understand and tolerate other religions objectively.
How has campus been from first year to second year?
So far, it has been interesting. I have been exposed to a whole lot of things – various seminars, academic work, and these have given me more experience in life. In SHS, I couldn’t improve spiritually because of the environment but here in KNUST, I have really improved in my spiritual life with the help of PENSA-KNUST.
What can you tell us about PENSA-KNUST?
PENSA is the best thing that has happened to me. It has supported me in several ways and has helped me to improve both spiritually and socially. I have also been able to relate well with others.
Amongst all the committees, why did you decide to choose Ushering committee?
I have the passion to serve others and to make sure that things are in order and that compelled me to join the Ushering Committee.
What is your take on this year’s theme and focus?
Becoming like Christ:Basically, Christ’s life was a life of love. Therefore, we becoming like Christ basically means we have to live like Him in every aspect of our lives.
Abiding in His word:We are in the dark ages where, without the word, we won’t be able to become like Christ. Therefore, if we are able to abide by the word, we will able to become like Christ.

Who is your favorite member/leader in PENSA-KNUST?

My visionis to become a great woman others can look up to.
My missionis to get rid of all distractions to my goal and to motivate others especially ladies.
What should we expect from you in the next 5 years?
To be pursuing my masters and at the same time be in the business field.
Are you in a relationship?
What is your take on people who blame others for their failures in life?
People who blame others for their failures are the failures themselves because being successful depends on the individual’s effort and not on the efforts of others.
What do you look out for in your future spouse?
A humble God-fearing man who is going to help me attain my vision and who is going to mold me into the woman I should be.
What is your motivational quote in life?

Please do you have any testimony to share with us?
I am from nowhere but now I am somewhere by the grace of God. Not all got the opportunity to be where I am.
Do you have any proposal for PENSA-KNUST/ improvement you want to see?
There are some members who do not have committees but feel bitter about no one coming to check up on them. They end up leaving the church to worship with other denominations and this is causing us to lose souls.
What advice do you have for the youth?
They should abide in the word and be like Christ.
Thank you very much for your time. God bless you too.
