She was a student of Sanity International School in the Volta Region, and according to her, she always worked hard to be the best in Class and in every activity she took part in at school. She was raised by a single mother, Ms. Benedicta Awudi, and seeing how her mother toiled to provide for her and the little one, her brother, she said to herself she was going to make her mother proud someday, and that inspired and pushed her to learn hard in school. She had the dream to become a Medical Doctor after Junior high.

While Francisca was waiting for her BECE results and school placement, she developed an interest in the annual National Science and Maths Quiz Competition while watching a Semi-final contest between KETASCO, St. Peters, and one other school on Television. Even though KETASCO was eliminated from the competition by St. Peters, She was amazed by how the contestants of KETASCO answered the Quiz mistress’s questions, and she started having thoughts of enrolling at KETASCO and then representing the senior high school at the NSMQ when she gets to her second year.

In late 2018, after the BECE results and placement came, Francisca enrolled at Keta Senior High Technical School, and she started working towards representing the School at NSMQ in her first year (SHS 1). She was selected among a twelve (12) member NSMQ team for KETASCO, and as they were preparing for the NSMQ competition, she was also studying to write NOV-DEC in her second year (SHS 2) which she wrote and scored 8As when the NOV-DEC results came.
