Yet another Ghanaian student has won the heart of the internet after making major strides abroad.
You would think we would grow tired of hearing it by now, but no!
Ernest Aboagye Forson completed his course of study at the Illinois State University with a perfect GPA score of 4.0.
He was also adjudged winner of the 2017 Statistical Project competition, which came with a $2,500 cash reward.
Even as his feat in completing his 2-year Masters programme in Mathematics with a sequence in actuarial science has left many awed, this was not the first time for Ernest.
Back home in Ghana, Ernest turned heads when he graduated from the University of Cape Coast with a GPA of 3.92, where he was awarded a Bachelor of Science degree in Actuarial Science.
What makes the story of Ernest far easier to connect to for most people is how ordinary his story seems. Ernest Aboagye Forson started education at Borkor and then to New Gbawe Experimental School D/A both in New Gbawe in the Greater Accra Region.
During his Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE), he scored 8 out of 9 ones. Form Junior High School, he proceeded to Accra Academy to study Business.
