Hi, my name is Esther Awuri from Ghana. My parents are from Navrongo in the Upper East Region, and I was born in Gyankama in the Eastern Region. I am from a family of five.
I attended High School at Awe Senior High Technical School in the Upper East Region. My hobbies and interests include reading, writing, arts and crafts, watching movies and athletics, especially football. In Senior High School I played defender in the school football team.
I joined Children of the Light (CotL) as a staff member in 2021, but prior to this, I was a CotL student all through Primary and Junior High School. I have many fond memories of growing up in the organisation. My love for reading developed through the annual Reading Month Competition. The performances were also fun, as I was often given a lead role. I’m excited to now be an assistant teacher in the organisation. I enjoy working with the children and I treasure the on-going art projects we do, as these give me a chance to help the children express themselves through art. CotL is a united team and I’m so happy to be a member of this organisation.
