Yaw Sompa-Nhyira Okyere, a 33-year-old Ghanaian gentleman who grew up in a very humble background, has succeeded in developing three different career paths for himself, among other amazing achievements.

Information obtained from Yaw Sompa directly indicates that he hails from Duayaw Nkwanta and spent a good amount of his years rearing goats.

According to Yaw, he did not have the luxury many children enjoy when he was growing up as he vividly recalls waking up early to sweep, attending to goats, selling 'ice water', and was mocked by his colleagues unendingly.
