“I have come a long way, and I believe grace has sustained me. Selling newspapers and reading articles helped me learn how to read.”
“While I wouldn’t describe them as difficult times, those experiences have molded me, as I grew up in a family that sold newspapers. During holidays, I would collect newspapers and sell them, including at the Bunso area, and then attend school on Mondays,” he added.

He said that despite the challenges, his formative life in Ghana played a major role in his subsequent achievements in the medical field in the UK.
