Ghana’s Jesisca Twumasi Wins Prestigious Award in Rwanda for Women’s Empowerment

Jesisca Twumasi, a 56th National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) Secretary for Women’s Development and valued employee of the Judiciary Service of Ghana, has been honored with the Prestigious Visionary African Female Icon Award at the Visionary African Women Summit held at the Kigali Serena Hotel in Rwanda on June 14th, 2024. The summit recognized Jesisca’s dedication to empowering women and enabling them to take on leadership roles.

During her tenure as NUGS Secretary for Women’s Development, she implemented initiatives that focused on mental health and breast cancer advocacy, menstrual hygiene campaigns, and advocating for the removal of taxes on sanitary pads.

The Judicial Service of Ghana is fortunate to have Jesisca among its ranks, and her leadership abilities have the potential to inspire women across various sectors in the country. Ghana has a wealth of untapped potential in its young female leaders, and having visionary leaders like Jesisca at the helm of national and international landscapes would be beneficial.

Jesisca aims to build a professional legal acumen after her MPA at KNUST and intensify her transformative Global Giant Women (GGW) initiative, focusing on resilience, leadership, entrepreneurship, advocacy, policy shaping, and climate change to empower women and help them thrive in the face of adversity.
