Emmanuel Nana Appiah Sam, a gentleman who was denied his certificate from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) upon finishing school, has made a great U-turn.
Recounting the powerful story sighted by YEN.com.gh on his activity feed on LinkedIn, Emmanuel revealed that when he finished KNUST in 2014, he had 14 trails.
He had pursued BSc Agriculture and was given a maximum of four semesters (two years) to rewrite all the trailed papers, which he did successfully.

To his dismay, however, Emmanuel still did not meet the minimum requirement needed to secure a certificate.
"I was able to use 2 semesters to finish writing them but at the end, my CWA fell below the pass mark of 40.00 hence I did not qualify for a certificate," he explains.
After a year of national service and staying home for another year, the gentleman picked up himself and started afresh at the University of Energy and Natural Resources (UENR) in 2016.
Just recently, he graduated with first class honours in BSc. Natural Resources Management with a GPA of 3.87, being one of the top 3 graduating students with the highest GPAs.
By way of concluding his story, Emmanuel shared a powerful piece of advice in the following words:
"It has not been an easy journey but the lessons are going to be a part of me forever. All the prayers and tears I thought God had ignored 6 years ago, He had not.
"I don't know what you're going through and I have so many things to tell you but most importantly I'll say don't stop praying. God has not ignored you and when the moment comes, He'll blow your mind!"
In another interesting story, two school mates from senior high school have succeeded in venturing into two of the most coveted career paths that are revered in Ghana currently.
This was revealed in a post sighted by YEN.com.gh on the personal Twitter handle of one of the gentlemen identified on the social media platform as Mants3 Adjei.
In the post, Adjei shared an old school photo of himself and his friend, Knii Somo, mentioned that it showed how they both started before becoming a lawyer and a doctor currently.
