A grateful man has shared his journey to becoming a professor and a thriving business owner in Cyprus.
In his post on LinkedIn, Ifeanyi Obi recounted that he moved abroad with just £230 (Ghc2,177) along with few shirts and pants.
He had to depend on only bread and mayonnaise for survival when he got there.
" I came with only 3 pants, 4 shirts and 3 pairs of shoes and for the next 2.5 years, I ate only bread and mayonnaise as my main meal whilst trying to survive. Squatted with friends for few months just to save money I didn't have."
