Accra, March 12, GNA – Ericsson Radio Systems, providers of industry-leading network equipment and software, has organized a conference for female engineering students to inspire them on achieving their dream goals of their chosen careers.
The conference, which formed part of the International Women’s Day Celebration was held in Accra, and attended by Female Engineering students from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Ghana Telecom Group, and University of Ghana.
Ms Lucy Quist, Managing Director, Airtel Ghana, and Mrs Estelle Akofio-Sowah, Country Director, Google, encouraged the student to work hard to realise their goals.
‘Make It Happen’ is the 2015 theme for IWD, encouraging effective action for advancing and recognizing women.
Ms Louis Quist, with her engineering background advised the students to try to be invisible, and unique in whatsoever they do, as well as understand themselves so as to know their strengths and weaknesses.
‘Nothing looks like impossible in life, it’s good to challenge yourself, and say no to things, that is what ended me up in Engineering Class’, she stated.
Mrs Akofio- Sowah also inspired students that they could achieve whatever they wish to achieve, and be whoever they desire to be, provided they remained focused, and acknowledged that there were bad days which would make it seem impossible, but that would not be the end.
She urged the participants to follow their passions and believe in their dreams, irrespective of their femininity, and venture into any field they were passionate about.
‘You don’t have to come from a technical background to enter into technology’, Mrs Sowah added.
