The Role Of YMCA In Societal Change Through Film Making.

During Tuesday's film training workshop (third edition) dubbed "Tell a story: how to use film as a medium to achieve social change in society", other aspiring young filmmakers and I were given in depth knowledge about the art. The training was punctuated with series of tests, assignments and practical exercises on camera settings, shot sizes and angles, telling stories with images, character development, movie elements and story writing. The training also passed a glimpse on media for peace, great films and filmmakers we can learn from. It was an amazing and eye opening experience. Thank you YMCA Ghana, Peace Be Unto Us All. #YMCA, #YMCA Ghana, #YMCA Africa, #Welcome, #AllOnBoard, #WELTFILM.org, #CVJM-Westbund, #ymcafamily

Dear Gijian Fresher, Here Are Some Things You Need To Know Before Stepping Foot on Campus GIJ

I have wanted to write this article since I stepped foot to GIJ and the realities began to unfold. I almost always had the ‘if I had known face’ that was covered with the mask of a smile. I write this as truthfully as recollection permits. You received a text message informing you that you gained admission to GIJ right? Congratulations, you are almost a ‘Gijian.’ You are one of the over 6,000 applicant who were finally short listed to study at Ghana’s premium university. Since you are new and probably not aware of how things are done at GIJ, here is what you might not want to know but need to know before stepping foot on campus. Contain your excitement, know who you are, be yourself, be content with what you have, know your class and focus on your goals. If you read this and still do not survive at GIJ then the person doing you is wearing some tight sneakers.I made reference to my diary to make up for my fading memories of GIJ.

Meet Student Who Does Astonishing Photography With Just A Phone!

MEET STUDENT WHO DOES ASTONISHING PHOTOGRAPHY WITH JUST A PHONE His name is Emmanuel Frimpong Oduro, a level 300 Architecture student of central university who has an undying love for photography.

Ebony Reigns Rip Return If Possible

Glory turned gory. It’s sad but that is the truth of the story. Oral research and evaluation directors’ a.k.a “ *kokonsa* ” accompanied by *any irresponsible person with data* a.k.a “honam pe job” at their insensitive best will share the images of her remains like a mother shares rice porridge to her kids every morning. “ *Nkwan kyen journalists* ” Misquoting and concluding for prophetess based on the recent developments. *Blogging tricksters* also joined in. They will *repeat the same level of unprofessionalism* . Wait for the funeral and see these so called *photo journalists* take pleasure in taking images of when sympathizers morn till they have a panic attach. All of a sudden *manipulators of the spiritual realms* become popular with their names withheld but the day they will actually prevent someone from dying maybe just then we will consider listening to them. Why should her father even have something to say, after all some *Ghanaians are just hypocrites?* Value every second of life when you breathe because *life is a gift that has an expiry date* . My RIP to Ebony is not the one that says REST IN PEACE. It the one that means RETURN IF POSSIBLE and if it is GOD’s will. *😊Aba Radical😎* *📽The Photographer of Thoughts🤔* FB: *Mercy Aba Blankson* Twitter: *@aba radical* 📞: *+233249953609* *, Like and Share* *#AbaIssaRadicalWriter✍🏾*
