George Ameyaw, a student of the University of Education, Winneba (UEW), who supported himself through school with his aboboya/okada business has graduated as the best student.
In an interview with Legit.ng, the gentleman confirmed that he had a GPA of 3.96, which was the highest in the Faculty of Science and Environment Education.
George studied BSc Integrated Science Education from UEW-Mampong campus in the College of Agriculture Education at the respected university.
His journey to becoming an aboboya rider started when George was in level 200 and his study-leave salary was cut.
With no solid financial support coming in, George applied for a scholarship from MTN Ghana Foundation and also gathered some funds to purchase an 'aboboya' to start a business.
MTN's funds helped George with school fees, accommodation and book purchases but he had to support himself with all other expenses from his okada business.
In the end, the alumnus of Kibi Presbyterian College of Education where he previously graduated as the overall best student, made himself very proud.
Throughout his entire university education, George had straight A's and B+ only three times.
George wishes to now study medicine or emergency surgery and would be wildly excited if anyone could support him on that journey.
