“Since BECE is the first external exams of Students, it comes with some level of fright. I was a victim of this. I wrote BECE with intense fright, wondering whether what I wrote is what the examiners want and if I could make it to my first choice school, Adisadel College. With these BECE experiences, we had to boost the confidence of these candidates using ourselves as quintessential examples” Nana Kwesi Coomson, Editor-in-Chief of www.233times.com and the brain behind this project said.

Saviour Adzika aka Sayvee, the founder and leader of Corpnation also said that “We had to pep these candidates up to make the region proud. We always talk about the best comes from the west so it should reflect in our education and other sectors in the region. It was a duty call for us to pep these candidates up to let them know that they can do it and rise above mediocrity.”

BECE Candidates who received the pep talks expressed appreciation to the Speakers and revealed that, their level of confidence for the upcoming BECE has been raised high and they are challenged to do better than previous year groups.

On board the ‘Yes We Can’ project were teachers and media personalities in the persons of Ebenezer Atiase, Manfred Darko, Jerry T. Mensah, Titus Egyirkoom, Maame Esi Senyiwah, Yasmin Bukari, Cephas Okyere, Chelsey Sey, Prince Jaidey Derby and Nana Midas.
