A Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) Chemical Engineering student who received support to finance his education has obtained 7As in his second-semester examination.
The young man, whose name was not disclosed, had to work as a trotro mate (mini-bus conductor) to fend for himself before enrolling at the university. His dream of furthering his education hunged in the balance despite earning stellar results in the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
The young man secured admission at KNUST but needed support to fund his education. He paid his fees thanks to Ghanaian social media personality, philanthropist Wendy Boatemaa Ofori, and another benefactor.
In a touching Facebook post, Wendy Boatemaa Ofori expressed excitement over the results.
"I'm peculiarly happy whenever this young man sends me his results. I received his second-semester results today. We paid his fees a day before the admissions was over. He was working as a troski mate with excellent WASSCE results. I'm so proud of him.
'A good man from here gave me money for his fees. Today, I sent him his results, and he instantly called me on the phone and cried during the conversation, but for him, this young man would still be roaming," she recounted.
