The Ghana resident told BBC News Pidgin that she has never walked in her entire life and expressed optimism at doing so in the nearest future.
Her mother said she had carried the girl to school initially but stopped it.
Agnes took the bull by its horns
And it came as a shock to the community when one day, Agnes dressed in uniform and took it upon herself to crawl all the way to school.
