An exceptional Ghanian Lady, Wendy Atswei Laryea, has bagged the prestigious Chevening scholarship award after being among the 21 selected winners of Ghana, beating out 1,979 other applicants.
Wendy Atswei Laryea, who is a TV3 presenter and broadcast journalist, received a Chevening scholarship to study for her Master’s degree program in Management/Corporate Sustainability at Cranfield University in the United Kingdom.

“For my “Tribe”, including Gabriel Obodai Torgbor-Ashong (a 2018 Chevening Scholar and John Elliot Hagan (a 2020 Chevening Scholar) they believed I was a “winnable” candidate and encouraged me to give it a second try,” she recounted.
