On Saturday 28 0f April the students of ASA went to MEST(melt water entrepreneurial school of technology) at East Legon for developers circle – Women Digitizing African through Entrepreneurship. As ladies who have respect for time we got to the place in time. On arrival, we met two ladies; Winnie (A former student at MEST) and a current student who took us on tour around the school.
After the tour, the program started where we were asked to have a chat with a person we don’t know and get to know more about them. Koby, the recruitment officer at MEST gave us a brief insight on what MEST does and how to be admitted. There was also a panel of discussion where ladies in the field of technology were asked questions about how they started their companies and also where they think their field of work will be in the next five years. These ladies were also questioned by the audience. They advised us to open minded in everything we want to do.
There was a short break and after that there was a session with Miishie Addy dubbed Women as elements of change in the Emerging Africa. During this session, I learnt the difference between a change agent and a symbol. There was an exercise where
we all asked to draw our tribe, symbolic community and our dream.
Finally, the program came to closure and we took a group picture. All in all, I loved the program because I learnt lot.
