Ghana Think Foundation has successfully hosted the 7th edition of BarCamp Tema at the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority Towers based in Tema, yesterday June 9, 2018.
The event which aims at creating a platform for young people to share ideas, identify, clarify and convert opportunities into business ventures saw the likes of Kafui Dey, Afia Drah, Caroline Sampson and Esther Ohenewaa-Brown mentoring and coaching participants.
The mentorship session according to Ato Ulzen-Appiah the Director of Ghana Think Foundation, was to empower and direct individuals especially the youth.
With about 200 individuals present at the event, each person had the opportunity to talk to at least three mentors.
However in an interview with Gifty (a participant) after her mentorship session, she revealed that although she had encountered many mentors, her session with Esther Ohenewaa- Brown was inspiring.
According to her, after talking to her mentor, she was confident achieving her dream which seemed quite difficult is a possibility.
She therefore encouraged individuals who couldn’t partake in the event, to make it a point to be present next time .
Other young entrepreneurs who took part in last year’s event also mentioned how BarCamp 2017 helped them identify their career path.
Kafui Dey during a presentation, adviced the youth to build good relationships and cultivate positive reading habits.
The event climaxed with a Breakout Session on topics such as the Ghanaian Dream, MPs and Parliament, Financial Literacy, Attitudinal change and Volunteering.
