Ernest Mawuli recounted in a post on his LinkedIn timeline that it took the intervention of his pastor and other supporters to emerge as the best in his academic journey.
The grateful young man shared that he lost his father while in secondary school and life went downhill from there. He soon found an angel in his pastor who took him in and saw him through secondary education.
The determined young man gained admission to UPSA to pursue a bachelor of science degree in Accounting and his pastor stepped in once again. He paid for his admission fees.
Payment of fees became a major challenge as the academic years went by. It got to a point where catering for school fees had to be prioritized over money for upkeep.
