You were born on 23rd February, 1997 and had your basic education at University Basic School, Legon.

Your passion to fly and be an athlete for Ghana saw you soaring high in your section ‘Wey Green’.

This zeal, humility and fighting spirit as an athlete culminated in you becoming Ghana’s youngest female commercial pilot.

In 2016, you attended a sponsored conference in the USA as the first African female pilot by International Women in Aviation.

Audrey Esi Swatson, your alma mater is indeed proud of you.

A star to Ghana’s premier University’s Basic School.

Go Girl! Soar higher and continue to make UBS proud
