Musician Becca has been named valedictorian by the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA).

Known in her private life as Rebecca Acheampong, she graduated with a GPA of 3.92, making her this year's overall best student (One year programme). She also emerged as the Best Masters Student in Brands and Communications.

In her valedictory speech, Becca mentioned that at a point, her education seemed an impossible task but for the support of her family, lecturers and colleagues.

“Being a mother now, a wife, a career professional and a singer furthering my education seemed quite impossible but thanks to my ever-supporting husband, Dr Saani Daniel who was always there to remind me that it was very possible, there is nothing you cannot do under the sun if you dare to try,” she said.

“I stand here before you as a testimony and confirmation that if you can dare to dream you can surely have it. I really hope someone out there can be inspired by me or by this and challenge for even high and better.

“To all lecturers, we pray that your fountain of knowledge will always flourish and replenish as you continue this beautiful task of imparting knowledge daily. You are indeed the backbone of this nation and may God bless you all,” she said.

A musician with over 15 years in the industry, Becca attended the Wesley Girls High School, Ghana and studied Child Care Education at Croydon College UK.

She later returned to Ghana and attended the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA), where she studied Operations and Project Management and graduated with First Class Honors.
