Travel abroad if you get the opportunity
Speaking to YEN.com.gh, the young man advised persons who get the opportunity to travel abroad not to hesitate.
Using himself as an example, he explained that his life has transformed for the better due to his decision to travel abroad in search of greener pastures.
"If the opportunity comes as a Ghanaian youth kindly grab it, be it school or work unless you are comfortable in Ghana. For me, my life transformed from zero to hero."
He also admonished the youth to be selfless and disciplined adding that these two principles have contributed greatly to his success.
"I was a nurse anesthetist from 2014 to 2019. at La Gen Hospital. But before then I was a General Nurse from 200 to 2014. Life became unbearable to the extend that it affected my family. I lost my investment with Menzgold and owed bank loans that I took to build a house. I had a visa from working with an American NGO and that’s how I got here.
"The youth must learn to be selfless in their service, hard work, discipline, commitment to work and persevere no matter the circumstance. My selfless service got my the opportunity to travel because when I was approached I didn’t even think of the benefit I was getting. This ended up getting me money and visa to come to America," he told YEN.com.gh.
Ghanaians congratulate him on his achievement
Many netizens who saw the video commended the young man for inspiring others with his hard work.
this what the youth needs to see, it didn't take him a year or two to achieve that, it took him years of hardwork and determination. God bless you
