Hard work beats talents when talents do not work hard and with a case study every accomplishment starts with the decision to work towards achieving them.
The President of Ghana, His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa-Akufo Addo as part of his appointment has seen a rise for women to hold office which doubles up the number of women playing key roles in his government. With equality of gender in his government, is to see women steering affairs and also form an integral part in the process of his government’s vision and mission in making the nation great again.
In accordance, Gifty Oware’s appointment came in as the youngest and first female to hold office as the Deputy Executive Director, National Service Scheme. Until her current appointment was the Head of Research at Danquah Institute, a Mislead Fellow of Moremi Africa Initiative. Also, a graduate from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science & Technology and the University of South Africa respectively.
With no hidden fact, as a woman succeeding in a male dominated industry, she was not perturbed by sobriquet given to her by fellow colleagues but rather her watch words were focused on perseverance and consistency. As said, “Consistent action creates consistent results, whilst great works are performed not by strength but by perseverance”.
In 2008 and 2012, Gifty Oware was part of the National Youth Wing who campaigned strongly for the New Patriotic Party coupled with many others who were also part of the team.

The Youth advocacy group endorsed the then Flagbearer who is Currently the President of Ghana to fulfill prospects of leadership needed in Ghana. Gifty was not only a member in championing the entire campaign but she proved her commitment towards the success of it all.
