My name is Etiam Kwaku Torgbenu aka ‘Nsawam Bolt’, a student athlete at the University of Ghana Legon studying Diploma in Public Administration. I gained my award from Labone SHS and through the physical recreation required by a participant, I continued my talent as an athlete which has afforded me the opportunity to represent Ghana in international athletic competitions.
The award has brought a lot of impact to me personally which helps in my everyday life. I developed my skills as a leader of any group I found my self in as well as a good team player and find it easy to team up with my mates both at training and at school to achieve my goals.
Again, through the award scheme, I had the opportunity to feature in the International Award foundation’s magazine in London to share my story which was a very exciting feeling and also had the opportunity to visit the Jubilee house (Ghana’s Presidential palace) for the first time.
I’m grateful to the award for the opportunity and look forward to being an Ambassador of the award scheme and also to inspire, encourage and motivate young people participate in the award with emphasis on physical recreation bit especially.
