Abena Korkor’s personality has become the subject of a quiz at the Ghana Institute of Journalism and she has shared a screenshot of the question along with her epic reaction in a fresh post uploaded on her Instagram platform.
The former Girls Circle host on TV3 who’s presently on a crusade to put draw attention to mental health, beamed with enthusiasm and expressed happiness that her experience, albeit controversial is being used positively and probably designed toward a radical change in the society.
The question was culled from a recent interview she had on Adom FM which sprouted out of her many controversies whereby she spontaneously mentions names of high-profile men who have gone between her legs anytime she has a relapse.
The students on the question 4 part of the quiz were asked to identify and discuss the therapeutic technique being employed by the therapist who was consulted by Korkor during the height of her bipolar disorder.
Here’s how the question was projected;
