A young Ghanaian man has expressed gratitude to all who have paved the way for him to pursue his dream despite the many hurdles and stumbling blocks.
The University of Mines and Technology(UMAT) graduate recently won several scholarships to study at seven top universities in Europe and America.
Speaking to YEN.com.gh, Patrick Abban Sarpong opened up on his childhood and how he was determined to climb up the academic ladder.
“I remember my grandmother struggled to pay my school fees and examination fees. I had to sell kerosene and washing soaps before I could afford school bill. I was sacked for school fees severally! All I can say now is that God has shown me great mercy. As a result of my intelligence and duties in the house of God as a young child, I received a scholarship (KB's Foundation Scholarship) from Basic 5 to JHS 3 from the Proprietor of the school, Mr. Kobina Mensa-Yorke” he said.
