-Female Valedictorian Urges Colleagues
A female valedictorian at Stain Teresa Convent Catholic School has urged female students across the country to cultivate self-confidence if they must become women they admire.

Speaking on the theme: ‘Be Woman You Admire’ over the weekend, Miss Dorcas K. Mendin said the lack of self-confidence has significantly created huge gaps between male population and their female counterparts in the country.
Miss Mendin, 17, who came ‘Division Two’ in this year’s West African Examination Council (WAEC) indicated that everyone admires people one way or the other and want to be like them, and warned that admiring somebody as lawyer doesn’t mean a woman must do same.
“If the woman you admire has much accomplishment, try to have many as well. To be a woman you admire primarily you have to cultivate self-confidence if you haven’t done so,” she said.
The Valedictorian further motivated her colleagues and exuberant parents and well-wishers in attendance to believe in themselves which according to her makes things to become lighter and easier.
“You will make many mountains out of low hills or out of plain air. Beef yourself up or drive yourself down over mistakes or temporary steps down. It is due to lack of self-confidence that has created a huge gap between the male population and their female counterparts within our Liberian society,” she added.
She however said the gaps can be resolved with all their determinations if they start believing in themselves based on who they admire.
“In life, you can only have a direction when you identify a road. It is essential if you have a role model. There is no woman who is successful that did not work hard. Let’s be consistently resilience and resolved. We have to let the world know that we are ready for the change we have been yearning for,” she indicated.
Miss Mendin commended the Liberian Government for her strive in revamping the educational system of the country.
According to her, there is no doubt over the significant strives the country has made in bridging the gap in female inferiority complex to their male counterparts.
“We commend the Liberian Government for minting the broken pieces of our educational system. Today, we acknowledge the increase in the number of students making successful passes in WAEC; this signifies that Liberia is making significant progress to transform the educational system from a fragile state to a vibrant one,” she noted.
She further said such is exemplified by the rise to power of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf. Miss Mendin added that the Liberian leader has set the pace for women to be trusted in high national positions.
“What else can we wait for? Let’s Go out and make positive impacts in our communities in Liberia and the world at large. Go and be the woman you admire,” she concluded.
Miss Dorcas K. Mendin who went ‘Division Two’ in this year’s WAEC exams is been awarded two years scholarship to attend the African Leadership Institute in Johannesburg, South Africa.
