Child Rights International celebrates Dr. Fathia Ayodele Karim, a former president of the Wesley Girls Child Rights International students club for the 2008/2009 academic year.

She won 12 out of 15 awards at her recent medical school graduation from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, shattering the previous record of 8 out of 15.

During her term of office as president of the Wesley Girls’ High Child Rights Club, Dr. Karim and her club members, under the patronage of Ms Ackon, launched an educational fund for the brilliant but needy students in Kakumdo.

In a recent interaction with the Director of Child Rights International, Mr. Bright Appiah, Dr. Karim emphasized that everything worth doing is worth doing well.

"As a former president of the club I have learned through training that as a child you can become whatever you want to become. Just choose right and do it right. I would encourage all children out there to follow their dreams, out-dream yourselves! Work hard, pray harder and be disciplined. ” Dr. Karim explained.

Dr. Karim hopes to narrow in on pediatrics/child care, a field for which she garnered the Ben Baffoe-Bonnie prize for Child Care.
