On her part, Blankson has paid for WASSCE for about 50 students and helped returning tertiary students with stipends.

She disclosed that she's planning to set up a foundation soon so she can help more indigent students fulfil their educational dreams and achieve their ambitions.

Blankson emphasizes that this is not merely an act of kindness but a commendable step towards securing the future.
