PERSONALITY – Priscilla Owusu Enimah
 

Welcome to personality show where we bring your way great people of God, as part of our duties we bring to you a virtuous lady from computer committee. Please relax, read and enjoy what she has to share with us.

P.C: Can you tell us about yourself?

Personality: My name is Priscilla Owusu Enimah, a third year student reading Economics. I belong to a family of six; my parents and four children of which I am the second born. I am in Africa hall, room 111. I started my basic education at Faith International, later I moved to Seventh Day Adventist School then completed at Rock Angge Presbyterian and Experimental, all in Kumasi. I had my secondary education at Yaa Asantewaa Girls where I read General Arts. I stay at Old Tafo in Kumasi, which is also my hometown.

P.C: How was life back in S.H.S?

Personality: What I can say is, I did not have much challenges while in S.H.S because of how I am. I always have in mind that wherever I find myself, I will be extra careful in order not to get myself into any trouble. So my S.H.S life was cool and by Grace I was the class chaplain. As a chaplain, you become a “Billboard” that people look up to; they will expect much from you especially your lifestyle. Also I was the first assistant prep prefect. In all I will say my leadership position helped in making my life in S.H.S lovely and my subjects teachers who became my advisers.

P.C: Do you have a nickname?

Personality: Yeah, when I became the chaplain my classmates called me “Priscychapsy” so I adopted the name because it’s a good and nice name.

P.C: Why KNUST?

Personality: Actually, I wanted to go to Legon because I had stayed in Kumasi right from basic school so I wanted to change my environment. Also admission to KNUST came earlier than that of Legon so my dad told me to come to KNUST. I can also say that my admission here is all by the grace of God because the person who filled my forms wrote an index number which did not tally with my name. I was offered Land Economy at first but when they realized the mistake, the institution was compelled to change the offer they first gave me and by the favor of God, I was offered Economics.

P.C: What can you say about KNUST in regards to your programme of study?

Personality: KNUST has met some of my expectations because a programme like Economics needs a lot of books for research and some of these books are in the library. I know there is more for KNUST to do, may be just a small library full of modern books for only Economic students where we can have more books for research because most of the books are archaic.

P.C: What can you say about pensa-KNUST?

Personality: PENSA-KNUST is a very lovely family. I do not really have many friends because I am the shy type. I see PENSA-KNUST as a lovely family because this group trains people academically through the introduction of academic mentorship programme by the immediate past executive, socially as I can testify the recent PENSA mega socializing and spiritually through the regular church meetings as well as other religious activities.

P.C: Why computer committee?

Personality: I was in Music and Drama committee but I found it difficult to attend committee meetings so I told the leaders and one of them advised me to pray about it and if God really want me to change my committee, it will be established. Also I did not want to be committee-less so I joined computer committee because I wanted to know more about IT and I can testify that computer committee has met my expectations through the training session we have every Saturday. I have learnt a lot about software, how to care for your computer etc. and I am still learning.

P.C: How do you understand PENSA theme and focus for this academic year and how has it impacted your life?

Personality: I think it’s a very good theme because through this theme and focus, I have learnt that it takes a lot of things for a Christian to mature. Growing into Christ, I ask myself “what does it takes to grow into Christ?” as a Christian, you start as a baby and your intimacy with God thus as you read your bible, meditate, pray and your fellowship will enhance your growth.  I also got to know that I am no more a child to be fed with milk but I have grown from that stage so I feed on solid foods. Also, if I used to wait for people to feed me with the word of God, now I have to read the Bible on my own and understand it. I did not like long prayers at first but now through PENSA I am changing. I used like only the music aspect but now I have developed interest for Bible study because I want to know more about the word of God so that I can defend my believe wherever I go.

P.C: Do you have any walk word?

Personality: Yeah. I always say “ be slow to speak but fast to hear” because I believe that God wanted us to talk less and hear more, that was why he gave us one mouth but two ears. If you are someone who talk less but listen more, you are able to learn more from people.  It also shows that you are a Christian because sometimes, somebody may say something to hurt but since you are slow to speak it prevents you from saying something which will tarnish your reputation as a believer.

P.C: What is your interest?

Personality: I love to sing a lot. I used to watch movies but I have stopped since I will be addicted to it and it may cause me to decline academically. I am also interested in volleyball but I do not know how to play so I want to learn how to play.

P.C: What is your favourite bible verse?

Personality: Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding”. Sometimes, I go through a lot that I try to give up and try to do certain things on my own without trusting the LORD especially in studying. I also realized that God knows whatever we are going through and He is the only one who can deliver us so I have to trust Him in all my ways.

P.C: Who is your favourite bible character?

Personality: Dorcas. She was a very kind woman, she catered for the poor and tried to make those around her happy and comfortable. Those around her loved her as well so when she died, the people were deeply troubled. They could not understand why such a good person should die so Jesus raised her from dead. I learnt that as Christians, we should be the source of happiness to those around us. I always try to put a smile on the faces of the people around me just as Dorcas did.

P.C: Who inspires you?

Personality: I sometimes motivate myself but I mostly take my inspirations from my dad. I really love my dad because he is an honest man. He always try to do the right thing, he is transparent and trustworthy as well.

P.C: Are you born again and has there been any transformation after you gave your life to Christ?

Personality: Yes am born again. I was born into a Christian home so I saw everything to be normal until I accepted Jesus as my LORD and personal savior that I really understood the things of God and got to know more about him.

P.C: Do you have any testimony to share?

Personality: I have a lot. To start with, when I was in class four I went to spend some time with my uncle and after the holidays, he sent me to the bus station to see me off. Since I did not know my way to the house, he told the driver where he should alight me. Before I got to my destination, we nearly had an accident but God saved us. Another one is the positions I have held from basic school to senior high school. Though I did not qualify for some of the positions but God granted me that opportunity.

P.C: What is your mission and vision in life?

Personality: I always pray to God to grant me the gift of healing so that I can heal my mother and other people who are suffering from any sickness. I also want to be a chartered accountant something like an auditor just to exhibit my virtue of honesty and transparency.

P.C: Have you been grabbed?

Personality: No, because I know that I cannot combine relationship with my academic work. One thing I believe in life is, if God wants you to get married, you will definitely marry. Also I want a grabbing which will lead to marriage so once am grabbed, marriage will be next but I am not ready now.

P.C: What do you expect from your future husband?

Personality: someone who is God-fearing, prayerful, dark and not taller than me, hardworking, love me and help me in achieving my dreams.

P.C: Can you use this platform to let those out there know who you really are?

Personality: I want all the people out there to know that I am the friendly type, I like to mingle with others. I want to see people around me so that we can laugh and crack jokes together though I sometimes want to be alone. I do not want them to see me as somebody who does not want to associate herself with others.

P.C: What do you dislike in life?

Personality: I do not like people who are liars and pretenders.

P.C: What is your take on grabbing in the church?

Personality: I don’t see anything wrong with it because I would like to marry in the church. It will be difficult for me if I marry outside since I am used to the practices of my church rather than other church’s practices and doctrines.

P.C: Do you have any advice for the youths?

Personality: What I can say is, as youth, we are young and more energetic so we should do the work of an evangelist, as our main focus for the last evangelism week was. We should be self-motivated, have it in mind that once someone has been able to do it, you can also make it.

P.C: What change do you want to see in PENSA?

Personality: I would like to see more females in the executive board though the immediate past executive has improved upon it but there are more to be done.

P.C: Do you have any prayer request?

Personality: I want the church to help me pray for my mum to be healed and my father’s sister who needs Christ in her life.
