A man has triumphed over the physical disability that should have marred his dream. His confinement to a wheelchair all started when he was a teenager of 17 years old.

In an account shared by a Facebook user, Nene Addo Kweitsu, the man came down with an ailment as a child which affected his mobility.

With a strong will to rise above his circumstances, he trudged on and got his degree from the University of Ghana in 2005.
