Speaking in an interview with the lifestyle and celebrity blogger, Zionfelix, Abena Korkor stated that the bipolar manic episode she suffered restricted her from pursuing her goal to become the first female SRC president of the institution.
“I was going for president, I was going to be the first female president of UCC campus and I has a bipolar manic episode and it was the first time it manifested”, she said.
She revealed that she went to the United States of America for an exchange problem and she suffered from insomnia for that reason, she disturbed everyone in the house by cleaning every corner of the room at dawn.
“Looking back in 2008 I was in the US for an exchange program but I was having insomnia so I woke up at dawn to clean the entire house and I was leaving with some white people of mine and I will be disturning everyone so my bipolar started a long time ago but it manifested in 2015”, she added.
However, her bipolar episode manifested in 2015 when she was about to contest the SRC presidency for UCC.
