A senior high school graduate, simply identified as Mansah, has impressed a man with her rare talent as a professional barber.
Mansah is making ends meet in a field dominated by men as she runs a barbering shop at Sampah Valley in the Greater Accra Region.
In a post shared on Facebook, Okyere, Osei Kwame Okyere, a social media user, recounted his experience with the teenage barber, who is a product of the Free SHS policy.
He disclosed that his initial reaction when he first entered Mansah’s barbering shop was that of a surprise because he did expect to meet a young girl.
''[When I first entered the shop, I became surprised, indecisive and confused for about a minute]. I didn't know if I was about to endorse child labor, get a messy haircut.''
Okyere said his confusion turned into curiosity, and he began to engage Mansah. Although he remained tentative about her skills, he decided to give her a chance.
''I sat in the swivel chair quietly, thinking where to buy a cap, in case this girl messed my hair.''
''She covered me, lowered the chair and the rest is what you see in pictures,'' Okyere said.
He disclosed that: ''[Mansah is a product of Free education from Swedru, who is working to save money to fund her tertiary education]''.
