Lady Who Spent 10yrs Working To Fund Her Varsity Studies Finally Graduates

A 30-year-old lady identified as Doreen Agamah, has graduated with her first degree after several years of working to fund her studies. 

The Ghana Institute of Journalism graduate narrated her breathtaking journey in an inspirational post on her LinkedIn handle, where she revealed that she had no support from anyone. 

“I was 20 with no support from anyone. I did petty petty businesses at that age till I completed Senior High School. Since no one was there to help I made up my mind not to further my education.

Because I don’t have the money. But one day I woke up and said to myself, no matter how long it takes, even if I have to attain my 1st degree at age 50, I will,” she recalls.

“I have sold kerosene, water, egg even the egg when I was in university I was still selling,” she says. 

According to the industrious lady, she had to spend five years after finishing Presbyterian Senior High School (Mampong Akuapem) in 2012 working and gathering enough money to buy forms and start pursuing her first degree. After that, it took another five years of combining work with the school to get through successfully and get her B.A in Communication Studies 

In her own words: So I decided to work to further my education and I did it!. I worked for 5years and I got admission to the Ghana Institute of Journalism to read Communication Studies specializing in Public Relations. 

And as a regular student, I worked as well because I had to cater for myself and also pay my fees. If you know Accra Central you will understand this. Working as a shop attendant, I go to work as early as 6:00 and get home like 7,8, or 9 pm sometimes late hours, and still have to study.
