The Chief of Staff, Akosua Frema Osei-Opare, has disclosed that she was once an athlete.
Speaking in an exclusive interview on Joy FM‘s Personality Profile, on Thursday, she told host Lexis Bill that, “I was a sportsperson. I could run and I could do especially, hockey and netball,” she disclosed.
Mrs. Osei-Opare also revealed that she served as a pupil teacher at St Monica’s School, after she completed sixth form.
She took on that duty, according to her, to fill the academic void caused by the departure of some teachers.
“When I finished sixth form, soon after 1966, the Russian lecturers at St Monica’s teaching science had to leave, so when they left, there was a gap so the sisters asked two of us to come back and to take a year to help in teaching. So I was in St. Monica Secondary School as a teacher teaching the lower classes – form 1 and 2 in basic and General Science,” she said.
The Chief of Staff said she started her second job as a Research Assistant at the Institute of Statistical, Social, and Economic Research (ISSER). That role, according to her, was critical.
This, she explained was because of the task involved.
“I was trusted by my supervisor to go into the field, go to all these fishing communities in Central Region and interact with fisher folks both fishermen and women. Sit in mummy truck and go all the way from market to market just following women to see what they go through…the challenges they face,” she said.
