Despite the obstacles women face in the industry, Joyce Annoh Yeboah, 21, is flourishing as a female sports analyst in a male-dominated field.
She has found a way to cope by combining her job as a sports commentator with her schooling at the Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ), where she is following a curriculum to advance her career.
Yeboah had wanted to nurture her childhood ambition of being a footballer when she grew up, but she had to drop the dream due to illness at the time.
Yeboah, who now works for Angel FM (ABN) and is known as Ephiya Empress on the radio, had a rough teenage life with her career, attending four senior high schools until eventually graduating from Garden City Commercial School in Kumasi, Ashanti Region.
Joyce Annoh Yeboah opened up about her path to become Ghana’s first female commentator in an interview with famous Ghanaian blogger Felix Adomako Mensah of Zionfelix TV.
