Meet the talented 22-year-old who's got an enormous art talent

Not many complete school and are able to apply what they were though so well that other people would admire, especially not for Senior High School level.

But for one SHS leaver, applying what he learnt in school comes naturally without any special effort.

He is Samuel Ameleto, a past student of St. Andrews SHS, a private second-cycle at Assin-Foso in the Assin North Municipality of the Central Region.
