Speaking about how the realisation of this childhood dream and the journey to accomplish it transformed his mindset, Selasi points out that he learnt a crucial lesson concerning excuses.
In his own words:
One thing my ICAG journey taught me is that excuses and success don't move together.
He explains that since 2016 he found very nice excuses to rationalise the fear of sitting for the exams until January 2019 when he said enough was enough.
"Here I am today, looking forward to the next challenge," is how Selasi Seth Ahadzie concludes his inspirational story.
