A young medical doctor in Ghana named Ruhaimatu Osman has indicated that she was a bad student back in senior high school, far away from the medical profession until the timely intervention of her teacher.
In a post by US Embassy Ghana, it is indicated that Dr Ruhaimatu Osman, an alumnus of St. Louis Senior High School, works at the Eastern Regional Hospital in Koforidua
According to the young doctor, in her first year of senior high school, the said teacher, Mr Michael Ray Simpson, was introduced to her class as the chemistry teacher.
See the full narration below:
He was a Peace Corps volunteer who had been posted to Ruhaimatu's school, and with his training, he was able to bring academics out of its written pages and made them real.
Dr Osman further indicated that the chemistry teacher went the extra mile to push her to perform better and this made her rise to the top of her class.
"He encouraged me to learn so hard and push for my dreams. So from a bad student in class, his encouragement made an impact and I became among the best in my class," she said.
She also mentioned:
"He told me I could make it when I didn't see a possibility. He believed in me when I didn't even believe in myself. I did so well in my final exams and entered medical school. Even with that he would at every point in time want to know my progress in life."
In a separate story, Jennifer, a visually impaired young lady who appears to be in her early 20s has disclosed she is able to take care of herself in school by working.
In a video that was shared by Daniel, a gentleman who revealed on Twitter he is a cousin to the lady, Jennifer was seen processing gari, otherwise known as cassava flakes.
The young lady indicated that processing gari entails a lot of activities to make sure it is done to perfection, but she is able to take care of it despite her disability.
