Jennifer Cudjoe urges Ghanaian female footballers to take education serious

Ghanaian female footballer and coach, Jennifer Cudjoe has challenged female soccer stars to combine football and education to be able to take other opportunities aside football.

The former Black Princesses midfielder and her Ghanaian compatriot Sherifatu Sumaila successfully completed their University education in the States last year.

The pair were part of the class of 2018 graduating as students of the University of Maine in the USA.

Cudjoe has been combining football and education since leaving the shores of Ghana to ply their trade in the United State.

Stories can be found all across Ghana of girls who enjoyed kicking a ball barefoot with friends, cousins, neighbours in the streets and the dust pitches but a few do receive a formal education.

In Ghana, many of these same girls face a tough choice between footballing passion and the aspirations of their parents or family members, or even society as a whole.
