Female barber, Grace Minnet is a former student of Benkum Senior High School who has made inroads in a career stereotypically seen as a male-dominated field.
Professionally known as Minnet the Barber, the adventurous lady has defeated odds and is excelling despite the impediments faced by women in her field.
The 25-year-old's career trajectory began after she completed senior high school in 2010.
Her humble beginning
Minnet started in a salon, working as a hairdresser because, for her, it was the career most young ladies her age were pursuing at the time.

Two years after working as a professional hairstylist, she decided to become a professional barber, understudying a colleague for six months to perfect the craft.
Minnet attributes her quest to pursue a career as a barber to the lack of balance in the barbering profession, which inspired her decision to fill the gap.
Becoming a skilled barber
Originally, Minnet is a business student from Benkum Senior High School, and that knowledge has also come in handy as a barber.
When asked how she's able to skillfully design the hair of her clients, the multi-talented Minnet revealed she loves arts.
''I like to do artwork, so drawing and designing are very easy for me,'' she told YouTuber Nii Ayi in an interview.''
Minnet believes she's the best female barber in Ghana because of her unique artworks, designs, and her three years of working experience.

Nigerian man barbed Burna Boy
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that the young man, Adeyinka, who went viral days ago as photos of him giving Burna Boy a fine haircut surfaced, spoke to Legit.ng about his craft and recent success in an interview.
The brilliant barber said his journey in the profession started two years ago when he was seeking admission into school and knew his parents were not financially buoyant to sponsor the education.
As a way out, he became an apprentice at a barbershop to learn the trade before his school would resume. With a passion to become better, the young man self-taught himself by watching tutorials on both YouTube and Instagram.
