FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: SDG’S INSPIRE ANITA ERSKINE AND NAFTI TO GIVE OVER 50 YOUNG AFRICAN WOMEN FREE EDUCATION

Positively influenced by a fine blend of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) #4, #5 and #9, Quality Education, Gender Equality and Innovation and Infrastructure respectively, Pan African Media Maven, Anita Erskine and the National Film Television Institute (NAFTI) have formed an historic ten - year partnership that will fuel the ambition of some young African women, who have a deep desire to revolutionize Africa’s Film and Television Industry. The Partnership, which will see the release of a series of scholarships, tuition bursaries, Internship opportunities and Short Film Project Funding, will have recipients and beneficiaries who have demonstrated brilliance and an eagerness to pursue Film Directing and Television Production but who are clearly at a socio - economic disadvantage such as poverty, disability or displacement (as in the case of Refugees) to name a few. These funds will be released by Anita Erskine Media each year and will enable the beneficiaries to access education at NAFTI, at no or subsidized cost to them.

The Internship opportunities for the students will be provided and brokered by Anita Erskine Media and its partner TV networks and Film Studios around the world. “NAFTI believes in impressing on its students that film and television are expressions towards the development of the intellectual, philosophical and cultural ideals of our people. As a result, NAFTI recognizes the importance of training not just media artisans, but scholarly professionals who can critically reflect on the African society and provide images and creative representations that enhance the Africa identity. So while professional training constitutes the Institute’s core work, its curricula continues to be a unique blend of scholarship inculcation and professional development.” Dr. Samuel A. Nai, Rector, NAFTI. This is the first time a woman in the Media and Communications discipline in Ghana, has collaborated with an Institute in the Creative Arts and Audio Visual Production field in Ghana. “NAFTI is a trusted Ghanaian institution and has indeed produced some of the most powerful film directors and television producers, whose works are meeting global critical acclaim everyday. The partnership approach is three - pronged. There is an urgent need for our true, authentic, original indigenous stories to be told. Meanwhile, there is also an entirely new army of Women rising. They want guidance, need support and crave every help they can get. Sadly many, lack the funds required to facilitate their dreams and ambition.

On another hand, the SDG’s are a clear challenge to each of us to empower and change our communities for the better. I am deeply passionate about Education for Women so I am confident that this collaboration with NAFTI will make an immense contribution to very fabric of our nation on so many levels. Our beneficiaries are between the ages of 17 and 23 and come from across the continent. Africa’s emergence depends on this kind of collaboration. And I thank God that it is lifting off today” says Anita Erskine. Erskine’s focus on Girls Education began as a personal effort which was initially inspired by her work with Discovery Learning Alliance - the non profit wing of global communications giant, Discovery Communications. Now, as an intercontinental advocate for Girls Education, Erskine’s resilience in this particular effort is to elevate Women around the world to allow Girls of all ethnicities to access Education. The potential recipients will come via recommendation from schools and communities and will be screened by the Anita Erskine Media Board in tandem with NAFTI’s senior management. The first batch of recipients will be announced in June 2018.

5 Things You Shouldn't Wear To Lectures

 

  • Sunglasses; Sunglasses were made to protect one’s eyes from the sun, not for fluorescent lighting.

 

  • Visible Bra straps; Bras were created to give women support under their clothes. The color of a woman’s bra should be a mystery.

 

  • Leggings as Pants; Girls like to wear them and they are so comfortable, but what kind of message are you sending.  Do not wear leggings unless it is paired with a shirt that covers your entire booty.

         

  • Colored Hairs; Due to the evolution of fashion, colored hairs are accepted on       regular basis, on the other hand, its can be distracting in lecture rooms.Students should   therefore be selective when choosing the hairstyle they fix to lectures.

 

  • Too much Make up; Makeup enhances beauty, but most ladies misuse it. Light makeup[ lip gloss,press powder,mascara,nude lipstick] is perfect for lectures.

The beautify ladies of the prestigious University of Ghana are not happy and concerned with the fact there is still no official information about Miss Legon 2018 beauty campaign.

Miss Legon is a beauty pageant in the University of Ghana, which was launched in March 2017. The contest sought to crown the most beautiful, talented and endowed as the queen of Legon.

Miss Legon is an initiative of the SRC Women's Commissioner (WOCOM), sponsored and powered by Twitchouse: an event house.  Fifteen beautiful ladies made it to the finals which took place on the 1st of April 2017; it was an amazing night of thrills and beauty. Hosted by the famous Jay Foley and Angel Ninney and the judges for the night were Elikem Kumordzi and Naa Quartey. It was won by the nineteen (19) year old Miss Vanessa Ohemeng, a level hundred student. She received a GH2, 500 cash price, one week fully paid trip to Dubai and a 32 inch Tv set and also as the new queen, to be a brand ambassador for Woodin, first choice and Colgate during her reign for a period of one year.

These amazing winner prizes got other girls wowed and interested in the pageant and the willingness to be a part of this year's campaign was massive since the beauty pageant was believed to be an annual event thus anticipation for Miss Legon 2018 was on.  But unfortunately the WOCOM has not officially announced the date or any plan concerning the pageant. some students believe the Miss Legon pageant is a history now and that is the end of it, some also think it will still happen but the hard truth is we are already in 4th week of the semester and March is already here and with no information from the Women's commissioner, we can conclude that Miss Legon 2018 will not come off.

Most girls have expressed their disappointment, anger and sadness about this since the platform to help them realizing their dream of being a pageant queen is gone, they are therefore pleading and asking the WOCOM to reconsider their decisions and bring back their pageant.

Now the questions in the minds and on the lips of students are;

Is it that there is not enough funds to organize the pageant this year?

Is it that WOCOM doesn't think students are patronizing the pageant?

Is it that there is no sponsorship for this year or no event house to help organize and power it?

We can only wait for WOCOM's office to come out with official information on MISS LEGON 2018 BEAUTY PAGEANT.

This year will be bloody as AGAMEMNON leads the GREEKS(vandals) to the TROJAN WAR(clash of hallweeks), WHO WILL BE VICTORIOUS..................

Another semester is here and the clash of hallweeks among university of Ghana JCR is on. last semester was wild and fun with Jubilee and International hostel, Mensah sarbah hall, Jean Nelson, Elizabeth sey , celebrating their hallweeks.

This semester is for the Gurus and students are indeed anticipating for these halls like Pentagon, Hilla Limann, Legon hall and Commonwealth(vandal city). it is therefore dubbed "THE CLASH OF HALLWEEKS". it will be too early to pick a side among these halls as to who wins considering their history of successful hallweeks over the years.

First on the list to celebrate their hallweek is Pentagon, this hall is well known for their fun pack hallweek celebrations not to talk of the famous "FRAT HOUSE" and "ARTISTE NIGHT" which they never disappoint student with. They always bring on board various top and big musicians in the country on one stage to wow the students with crazy and vibrant performances.

Pentagon hallweek dubbed "AFROCENTRIX" already confirmed  performing artistes are (lil shaker, kojo cue, kwesi Arthur, captain planet,king promise and others.) ,one can be certain the "AFROCENTRIX" will be a blast and a night to remember.

Hilla Limann Hall is  also in march, one cannot leave Limann out when it comes to celebrating hallweeks in style among the "DIASPORA" halls. They surprise students every year with cool and wild celebrations with crazy  turn outs. The name for Limann's hallweek is "RENAISSANCE" which means "Rebirth", we believe it's the birth of a new era and the rebirth of fun. students are happy with their rebirth, and waiting to be surprised once more.

Next in line is the premier hall (Legon Hall), branded as gentle and calm but when it comes to hallweek celebration the gentility is put aside "to dirty demma body". Legon Hall has a long history of giving students their feel of fun during their hallweek celebrations since the 80's ,giving students amazing back to back to back experience of hallweek with their activities and they don't disappoint on artiste night either. Hiplife moguls like,sarkodie, joey b, pappy kojo, vvip, mz vee, yaa pono and others have been on legon hall artiste night platform. The name for this year's event is "PLACEBO", assuring students it is not to provide a deceptive treatment but rather an acceptable and pleasant experience . we are not speculating but rather anticipating for the placebo effect.

Finally ,the Premier hall is the Vandal City boys (commonwealth hall). due to some reasons, vandals were not allowed to partake in the annual hallweek celebrations but have being allowed to do it this year and for that we can expect something massive from them as they also intend to give in their all for students to feel their presence once more. There is no doubt vandal city could be crowned King in this year’s clash of hallweeks since they have being greatly missed in the hallweek celebration world and we confess we miss their vibrancy. This year they named it "AGAMEMNON", the name of a great Greek hero who lead the greeks to war.

This year will be bloody as AGAMEMNON leads the GREEKS(vandals) to the TROJAN WAR(clash of hallweeks), WHO WILL BE VICTORIOUS..................
