Nearly similar to most grass to grace stories, a resilient US-based Ghanaian native, Agbeko Odione Kumordzie, has shared an inspiring story about his humble beginning and how he resolved to turn the tables in his favour.
Agbeko Odione Kumaordzie details his story in a soul touching manner about his difficult childhood while he lived with his mother in rented chamber and hall house in Klikor Agbozume in the Volta region.
Then a toddler, Agbeko recounts how his single mother struggled to take care of him and three other siblings in the poor rented house.
However, resilient young Agbeko resolved to study and complete his O level in 1993 and would soldier on to finish his A level in the same house.
Despite the daunting discomfort, Agbeko would thrive amid the setbacks to make lemonade out of life’s bitter lemons offered him while growing up.
After completing his A level at Adisadel College in 1995, Agbeko pursued his tertiary education at the University of Cape Coast and soon after graduating, the charcoal seller’s son began to ''wear white''.
Agbego’s journey to a better life would begin to take shape as he begins to align with his destiny.
He moved to the United States and currently lives in Baltimore, Maryland in the US with an established and thriving career.
The former charcoal seller’s son took to social media to inspire with his personal story in a popular Facebook group.
''This is where my single mother raised the 4 of us in Agbozume. Rented Chamber and Hall. This is where l studied for my O level in 1993. This is where l studied for my A level ( 95) when l was in Adisco. This is where l completed University of Cape Coast,'' Agbeko recounted.
He continued his soul touching story: ''Oh.. this is where my mother sold charcoal to raise us.
This is where l bid my mother goodbye in 99 to the United States of America.
My Ask Twena people..if you can love me without knowing my past, then your love is genuine and pure..I love you all.''
Meanwhile, despite completing the 2019 West African Examination Certificate Examination (WASSCE) with a near distinction, Sackey Abednego, a former student of Kade Senior High/Technical, faces a real challenge of not being able to further his education.
Sackey Abednego graduated high school with remarkable scores of 7As and B3.
