The young man recounted his journey in a post seen by Briefly.co.za on his LinkedIn handle, where he indicated that he graduated from the Institute of Chartered Accountants (Ghana) on June 27, 2020.

According to Selasi, he grew up always wanting to be a chartered accountant even though he did not truly understand what it meant to be one back then.

Speaking about how the realization of this childhood dream and the journey to accomplish it transformed his mindset, Selasi points out that he learnt a crucial lesson concerning excuses.

In his own words:

"One thing my ICAG journey taught me is that excuses and success don't move together."

He explains that since 2016 he found very nice excuses to rationalise the fear of sitting for the exams until January 2019 when he said enough was enough.

Sipheleke Zond'amaxoki Nongqotho shared a touching Facebook post to honour the most important woman in his life. The young man graduated recently and revealed the key role his gogo played in his success.

His inspirational post explained:

"When am looking at this woman I don't just see an ordinary person, I see a hero. She worked very hard for me to be where I am. She saw lights that were so bright for me to see she pray for me.
"My mom stood up for me when I couldn't stand. Mama enkosi mathaba, mxasana. Lockdown couldn't stop is from celebrating our celebration."
