Celebrity Lady Barber shines at Face of Africa 2023 Awards
One of Ghana’s few female barbers, Elizabeth Amponsah, who has carved a niche for herself in the ‘grooming’ industry was adjudged Barber of the Year at the 2023 Face of Africa Awards held in Accra.
Known as the Celebrity Lady Barber, she beat tough competitions from hundreds of entrants in the category to walk away with one of the topmost accolades.
The exceptional barber who has warmed the heart of many through her craft, received a citation from the organisers for her efforts.
“Warmest congratulations on your achievement! Wishing you even more success in the future. Con¬gratulations on your well-deserved success! You are an inspiration,” her citation read.
Though her profession is domi¬nated by men, the young, dynamic, hardworking and beautiful barber is looking forward to gaining global recognition as one of the best hands in the industry.
Speaking to The Spectator, Lizzy said, the awards would serve as mo¬tivation and propel her for greater recognition.
“This is my passion and pro¬fession. I approach my work with diligence and ensure that my clients are satisfied,” she stated.
“This is a testament of my hard work over the years and it would motivate me to do more to gain the recognition to inspire others,” she stated.
She advised other females to go all out to pursue any career of their choice without fear especially those assumed to be male dominated fields.
“Women can do anything if they put their minds to it. I would like to urge all women to work hard in any field they find themselves as they could excel in any profession,” she stressed.
