The average Ghanaian school leaver has the mentality of waiting for jobs from the government or the private sector.
In fact many, of them dream of the jobs in offices which are non-existent, to put it mildly.
It is therefore always refreshing to find a young person trying to do something for themselves even under very difficult circumstances.
YEN.com.gh caught up with with one such person who is not waiting for an 'official' job to put his body and soul together.
He is Odjeawo Godfred Tettey Kwao, a self-taught stylish painter who is taking interior designing to a whole new level.
Tulip, as he is widely known in his Madina vicinity, is a 25-year-old Senior High School (SHS) graduate.
After graduating from Begoro Presby SHS in 2013, he had wanted to pursue higher education but had to retreat because of lack of funds.
To make make his dream come true, Tulip decided to create his own opportuities and he settled on painting.
Having studied Visual Arts, it would be easy to conclude that that he would find it easy with his new career.
But the Begoro Presec old boy says it was not that simple for him, as he had decided to focus on interior designing
According to him, with the modern trends of painting, he had to rely on YouTube videos to learn his craft.
"Yes, I offered Visual Arts in school but what I'm doing now is more of my skills and some guidelines from YouTube," he told YEN.com.gh.
When asked if he still had the ambition of going back to school, Tulip answered in the affirmative.
He thus appealed for more jobs (contracts) to enable him save enough for school
Though business was not bad, like Oliver Twist, Tulip is asking for more and we think he deserves it.
Looking at his works, he is doing as well as any painter around if not better than many of them.
