The saying, if wishes were horses, beggars would ride is a very familiar phrase to most of us. We all have expectations, and though most of them are fantasies, we are allowed to have them because they are our kind of “Wish,” and the thought of it makes us feel good, though for a short while.
It is no doubt that Mrs Georgina Asare Fiagbenu is a great writer. Skimming through her maiden book during the launch, I chanced upon an interesting phrase that ran through: “If I Were.”

Writing on thoughts that can shape society, the author shares her view on if she occupied enviable positions in society, to if she was a celebrity, to if she was noted for something or in a particular phase of life, including thoughts on self-development and family.
If you were asked to showcase your talent for a million cedis, what would you do? To Gina, it was her way of starting a conversation on how unique every individual is and how perhaps, their talent can fetch them millions of cedis if nurtured properly.
This makes it very easy for people to relate to her book since she addresses pertinent issues, considering them as wishes of which she answered in her own way.
The launch was graced by personalities such as Kojo Antwi (Artist), Affail Monney (President, Ghana Journalists Association), Manasseh Azure (Journalist), Esther Cobbah (CEO, Stratcomm Africa), and many great personalities.
At the launch, the author shared how valuable relationships contributed to who she was and her main inspiration behind the book. There were a book reading and book review session, which was blended with musical performances from various artists.
