Paul Anomah Kordieh, e.TV Ghana’s presenter is to receive the ‘Man of Courage’ honorary award from EMY Africa.
Paul over the years has stood tall among his peers because of his exemplary pursuit in broadcast journalism, despite being visually impaired which would have ordinarily been a barrier to realizing his passion for broadcasting.
According to Paul, who is also the Executive Director for National Resource Centre for Children with Disability, (NRCCD) he is grateful to EMY Africa for recognising his contribution to the media as an industry.
‘’ I am elated that my work over the years have been recognised, I am grateful to EMY Africa but I also know that to whom much is given much is expected. I always assumed for being in the industry for this long nobody is watching but now I know someone is watching and that has gingered me to do my best’’ he promised.
He also encouraged persons living with disabilities to have faith in themselves and follow their dreams because reaching greater heights is within reach of everyone no matter the challenges.
‘’God created us all for a purpose and I believe we can achieve so much if given the opportunity and what we need to succeed in all our endeavours’’ he stated.
He advised organisations to give people living with disabilities a chance to flourish.
‘’Finally I want to appeal to organisations to give people living with disabilities a chance. Look at what Global Media Alliance especially e.TV Ghana did for me. Let me be that beacon that proves that persons living with disability can be everything they want to be and more’’ he said.
He also said he is grateful to EMY Africa for counting him worthy to receive 2019 ‘Man of Courage’ award.
