A Ghanaian living in the United States of America has shared his reasons for leaving Ghana to another country.
He said that people travel for various reasons and some may not really be the best but he believes his are good enough.
In a TikTok video, @_samcharles said some people travel so they can work for several hours and make money, while others want the prestige that comes with travelling abroad. But if one does not have a good reason, they will give up because of the pressure it comes with.
"It will get to a point that schools will start denying you admission, and visa interviews will be denied. There will be so many hurdles that will come your way. The only thing that will hold you is your why."
"The things I was doing none of them was working and none of them could work in Ghana. I was running a podcast it wasn't doing well in Ghana. I was writing so many books they were on Amazon and Amazon wasn't in Ghana. I wasn't accepted into any law school in Ghana because they don't accept people who have below C," @_samcharles added.
He had a D7 in his Core Mathematics, some Cs and Bs. According to him the only place that accepted him was America and that was why he moved there.
