At just 11 years old, Suzy Armah is shaping narratives about women in fields that are considered to be a 'man's world'.
Suzy runs her own barbershop at Yawamatwa in the Bia West District in the Western North Region in Ghana.
The young entrepreneur has grabbed attention with her talent. Suzy is a rare gem for her age, as she is not just a barber but also doubles as a professional dancer.
In a recent interview with GHevent TV crew, the 11-year-old minor recounts how she discovered her skills.
According to Suzy, her elder brother wanted to trim his hair sometime ago but he had no money to go to the barbershop so she offered to help.
Her decision to help her brother was met with great laughter and mockery from some family members, but in spite of her detractors she remained resolute about her decision.
''I woke up one day and my brother wanted to shave but there was no money to go to the barbershop, so I offered to help him,'' she reveals.
Suzy adds, ''It was a bold decision telling my brother. The whole family burst into laughter but I never allowed the mockery to be a drawback.''
Determined to follow through with her decision, she went straight into the room, picked up a comb, a pair of scissors, and a blade and told her brother to trust her to trim his hair.
Suzy's account is beyond thrilling as her recent interview is rapidly making the rounds online.
