There are usually stories that would definitely inspire someone and this is one of them. Today we present to you Nathan Addo Larbi, a first-class graduate who was mocked by his coursemates for hawking bread in school.
Nathan, a first-class graduate from the University of Cape Coast (UCC) has told ALLSCHOOL how he combined his business with his school and still came out excellently.
According to Nathan, a graduate of the Department of Agribusiness revealed that because of his academic feat and focus, his business, which he founded while in school, is now in partnership with a UK firm.
Read his story below:
Nathan Addo Larbi is my name. I just graduated on 16th December, 2021 as a first class student of University of Cape Coast, UCC.
In fact, it was a herculean task for me to combine business with academics but I was able to endure to the fullest . Because of the financial crisis at home, I used to miss lectures and quizzes to hawk on the street to sell bread . I did the bread selling from level 200 to level 300 .
Majority of my program mates made fun of me for carrying bread on my head but I endured since I knew that’s the only option I had to support my parents at home.
In fact, it wasn’t an easy task for me at all yet, I have been able to blend business with studies of which I have successfully graduated today as a first class student of UCC.
I successfully established a maize trading company during level 400 first semester, which is known as “ Sankofa Maize Connect Enterprise (SMC) “ , and recognized by the Register General Department.
Currently, SMC is in equity partnership with Umoja Generation wealth which is based in UK.
I hereby admonish the youth of today nthat they should forgot the search for white-collar jobs which is unattainable and venture into entrepreneurship, which will make them selfemployed and provide antidotes to the ailing Ghana’s economy.
Above all, they should never give up no matter the obstacles.
