On the 1 January, 2017, Marie-Noelle Kpatakpa & Rachel Odartey-Wellington (co-initiators), Dede Coffie and Samantha Azu (organizers) went to Apostolic church in Tema community 5 to speak to youth much like us about the complexities of being a teenage female in society. It was an insightful journey and it paved way for all of us to fully engage and advise each other on issues related to teen girls. It was definitely eye opening because you find that much like ourselves these young ladies had the same issues we are all faced with on a day-to-day basis that make us feel unappreciated. We conducted an exercise where they wrote issues we have in society and we discussed them in a riveting manner adding our own personal experiences.
