Esther Adjoa Asamoah, a brilliant 22-year-old Ghanaian lady is studying for her master's degree in International Affairs at the University of Ghana.
Recounting how it all happened on her LinkedIn handle, Esther mentioned that it has always been her dream to get a second degree before she turns 23.
According to her, this almost failed because she made the mistake of applying to only one school initially but as it turns out, life had a different option to help her fulfil the same aspiration.
"Fast forward, I’ve successfully completed my first week of my postgraduate studies in International Affairs, after weeks of protracted strike actions. I am genuinely excited about this new phase and looking forward to all the growth it brings!" she added.
