A young graduate of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) with First-Class Honours in BSc Environmental Science has started her own business.

In a short interview with Briefly.co.za, the lady by name Deborah Laryea decided to start working on people's hair at ladies homes.

Interestingly, Deborah indicates that the styles of hair she has been making are purely from her own imagination as she never learnt the skill. "I imagine it and my hands replicate my imagination," she says.

Deborah graduated in 2018 and completed her national service in 2019 with Ghana Manganese Company Ltd as a Health Safety and Environment officer where her performance was also excellent.

Sadly, she was not recruited after the national service and has been job hunting since then. In her own words: "I am still searching for a mainstream job but I have taken to going to people's houses and shops to braid for them. I never learnt to braid. It came to me naturally".

It is rather admirable that unlike many young graduates who would simply sit home when they are unable to get a job, Deborah decided to put her hands to use and is making something for herself at least.
