- Akua Safomaa, a young graduate of Holy Trinity High School, is now into cabbage-selling business to fund herself through tertiary school
- The young lady, who works the business with her brother, said she is able to make a profit of R287 daily which she wants to accrue until it's enough to fund her studies
- However, any help from well-meaning people who might want to support her nursing ambition would be welcomed
Akua Safomaa, a young Ghanaian high school graduate, is defying odds by engaging in the sale of cabbage in order to gather money and fund herself through tertiary school.
In an interview with SV TV Africa sighted by Briefly.co.za on the official YouTube channel of the organisation, Akua indicated that she graduated from high school in 2019.
According to the hardworking young lady, she has since been unable to enrol in a tertiary school because of lack of money, as her grades are excellent.
Watch the full interview below:
Akua further mentioned that she now runs a cabbage selling business with her brother, and is able to make a profit of R287 a day, which he hopes to accrue until it is enough to send her to school.
In answer to a curious question, Akua said she knows very well that there are ladies out there who sell their bodies indirectly to men in order to make money.
"I am not into that because I believe in myself that I can work and get whatever I want in life and I also don't want a bad name for myself," she added.
So far, Akua, who graduated from Holy Trinity High School, has been into the cabbage-selling business for two months and would appreciate any support to fund her nursing training education.
In another news, a young woman recently managed to get a job and her reaction to getting hired was priceless. After exiting the new employer's building, the young lady started dancing, unaware of the CCTV cameras outside.
The video has since been posted on Instagram and it quickly went viral, gathering over half a million views in just a day.
Taking to Instagram, @dakara_spence shared a video showing the young lady only walking a couple of steps before she spontaneously starts dancing in the parking lot. @Dakara_spence captioned the post:
"So I just hired this young girl and this was her response."
