Ghana's Most Talented Teen

Accra — It's not just about beauty. It's about your talents. I think it was a beautiful show, filled with very talented teens. The stage was beautifully set and the show had very sunny presenters. Each and every girl had her own special talent like dancing, playing the piano, singing etc. Most of Ghana's favourite song artistes were there, like Keteke.

Almost every seat was filled and at a point when some of the artistes were singing, people got up from their seats and started to dance.

It was a very tough decision for the judges to make, especially when we had future doctors, lawyers, masons etc. We were entertained by a group of GIS girls in glittery beautifully coloured dresses. A performance was also made by last year's winner, Francisca Dennis. After a hard and tough time, the judges had made their decision. The 2nd runner-up was Vako Aba Tamakloe of Achimota School, the 1st runner- up was Jackline Appiah of GIS and the winner was Ama Yeboah also of GIS.

She will represent Ghana at the 30th Hal Jackson Talented Teen's International Scholarship Contest in New York City, at the Apollo theatre on 29th July.

Good luck Ama, I hope you win!
