Yvonne Nelson triumphantly returned to her old mater, St Martin de Porres School, to engage in an open discussion with students on the crucial significance of abstaining from sex to prevent sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and unplanned pregnancies.
This is part of her recently announced “The Real Tour” to educate young people in elementary and secondary schools about the hazards of early sex and unprotected sex following the release of her book, “I Am Not Yvonne Nelson.”
The tour also aims to use her platforms to promote positive social change and sexual health awareness.
She started her visit on Thursday at the St Martin de Porres campuses in Dansoman and Weija.
She was joined on stage by Prince David Osei, Solomon Fixon Owoo, and Dr. Sussie Ankuh.
Yvonne enthusiastically enabled the students to make informed choices regarding their sexual health and well-being. She frankly highlighted the potential consequences of engaging in sex and the far-reaching impact it can have on one’s life, drawing on her own experiences and problems.
She pushed the students, with sincerity and understanding, to prioritize their health and future by accepting abstinence as a viable option.
She emphasized that abstaining from sexual activity can significantly reduce the risk of STIs and unplanned pregnancies, allowing them to focus on their education, personal growth, and fulfilling their dreams.
Prince David Osei who also spoke to the children encouraged them to report any elderly person, be it their uncles or aunties who try to play with their private parts or try to take advantage of them.
Dr. Sussie Ankuh spoke extensively about the different types of Sexually Transmitted Infections and their dangers to the life of children.
She encouraged them to stay away from sex.
At this point in their lives, she said their education should be their priority.
The event provided a safe and supportive space for the pupils to ask questions and express their concerns.
Yvonne and her team gracefully responded to each query from the children, emphasizing the significance of open communication with trusted adults, teachers, or healthcare professionals when addressing sensitive topics related to sexual health.
Through her visit, Yvonne Nelson effectively promoted the importance of sexual health awareness and responsible decision-making among young individuals.
The impactful discussion is expected to leave a lasting impression on the pupils, empowering them to make responsible choices in their lives.
