Prez Mahama Gives Jackie Appiah A Big Handshake…

Either you love her or loathe her; she keeps rising and bagging all the prestigious awards…

At the recently held National Youth Achievers Awards, Star Actress Jackie Appiah took home the 2012 National Youth Achievers Awards for Performing Arts.

At the event, she was given a big hand shake by the President of Ghana- HE John Dramani Mahama. (Yeap, President of Ghana himself gave her the well done).

The National Youth Achievers Award (NYAA) is a national recognition platform designed to publicly honour exceptional youths between the ages of 15 – 35, who have excelled in various sectors of the country, with the hope of preparing them for responsible leadership.

I have even lost count of the number of Awards Jackie Appiah has taken home since she started acting!
