Melody Kukua Adjei, who is a popular blogger is a perfect example of what it means to say the ''charcoal seller’s [daughter] will one day wear a white dress''.
From working as a head porter popularly known as 'Kayayo' to fend for herself, Kukua Adjei became one of the loved voices on radio and television.
But her story won’t end there. With determination, she has successfully graduated with a degree from the African Institute of Journalism and Communication (AUCC)
Having once lived at the mercy of the weather on the streets hustling to survive, she took to social media to inspire her followers and many after graduating from AUCC.
''I nearly deferred, yes because it was tough! But I kept on fighting and Yes, I made it.
From KAYAYO to Sokoohemaa Kukua. Throughout my education I've never been the best but I'm always among the best after school, I think it's a calling innit???''
