Yaaay!!!! We have a new spelling be champion.

12-year-old Shifa Amankwa-Gabbey won the National Spelling Bee competition by correctly spelling the word “Wamara”.

Sometimes called Guyana Rosewood for its lustrous, dense, and colourful wood, Wamara is a type of wood that is commonly used to make fine furniture and cabinetry, parquet flooring, turnings. It is mostly found in South and Central America.


Being able to spell the winning word means Shifa will be representing Ghana—and the whole of Africa—at the Scripps Spelling Bee in Washington D.C. in late May.

This Kuulpeep is young, and she is already going to put Ghana on the map.
