Narrating her story to YEN.com.gh, Vivian Aggrey Otoo indicated that the journey was a tough one, particularly as a single mother who was making ends meet for herself.
According to the relentless lady, she has been able to survive together with her child by combining her studies with a brewery business she has been running for the past five years.
"The journey has been tough, very tough. Breaking my back, sleepless nights, working so hard to pay my fees. Been working on my Bɛsiaba's Brew(brewing local drinks and Decor and Desh) Households(producing detergents) for five years. And that's how I survived," Vivan tells YEN.com.gh
To make matters even worse, when she started her first degree, Vivian lost both of her parents on the same date.
However, with her Diploma in Accounting (distinction), the hardworking lady was able to complete her Bachelor of Business Administration (second upper) and has now graduated with an MPhil in Finance.
On what kept her moving on despite the many challenges, Vivian said:
One thing I believe in is Never Quitting. Being a single mum shouldn't limit you in anyway. You achieve if only you want to.
