Adusei made desperate appeals to many influential people, including her pastor, to help her land a good job, but her efforts did not yield any fruits.

How she went into hairdressing

After years of job search with no glimmer of hope, the first-class graduate decided to turn her hobby into a business and now works as a hairdresser to support herself and her siblings.

Adusei recalled:

'While I was on campus, I used to style my own hair, and I used to style for my roommates. They helped me discover that talent''.

Not everyone was in support of Adusei's decision to venture into the vocation, including her mother's initial disagreement, but the determined lady is making progress.
