Yaw Sompa-Nhyira Okyere, a 33-year-old Ghanaian gentleman, who grew up in a very humble background, has succeeded in developing three different career paths for himself, among other amazing achievements.
Information obtained from Yaw Sompa directly indicates that he hails from Duayaw Nkwanta and spent a good amount of his years rearing goats.
According to Yaw, he did not have the luxuries many children enjoy when he was growing up as he vividly recalls waking up early to sweep, attend to goats and sell ice water and was mocked by his colleagues unendingly.
However, Yaw Sompa decided to move to Accra somewhere in 2010 in search for greener pastures, got a job with Zoomlion in the process and things started to change for the better. Fast-forward, the gentleman who comes from the small town of Duayaw Nkwanta has become a Lawyer, Information Security Expert and Enterprise Risk Management Officer.
Yaw Sompa is also an author of two books including Face of System Thinking, speaks to the youth, and has acted with Roverman productions.
He has also set up Africalearn.org, a community of learners that have expertise across multiple industries and represent a revolution for the new African Dream of wealth, dignity, influence, collaboration, purpose, health and wisdom.
