Akua Safomaa, a young Ghanaian high school graduate is defying odds by engaging in the sale of cabbage in order to gather money and fund herself through tertiary school.

In an interview with SV TV Africa sighted by YEN.com.gh on the official YouTube channel of the organization, Akua indicated that she graduated from high school in 2019.

According to the hardworking young lady, she has since been unable to enrol in a tertiary school because of lack of money, as her grades are excellent.

Akua further mentioned that she now runs a cabbage selling business with her brother, and is able to make a profit of GHc 100 a day, which he hopes to accrue until it is enough to send her to school.

In answer to a curious question, Akua said she knows very well that there are ladies out there who sell their bodies indirectly to men in order to make money.

"I am not into that because I believe in myself that I can work and get whatever I want in life and I also don't want a bad name for myself", she added.
