A dream nearly put on hold
Twum’s dream of studying Economics at the university was nearly put on the back burner due to financial constraints. He, however, received a scholarship to study at the University Of Cape Coast (UCC) thanks to Ghanaian brand ambassador Kwahu Ambassador.

In a recent video, Twum disclosed he’d gained admission into a university outside the country to pursue an Economics degree
“There was no hope for me before I gained admission into UCC. That’s why I returned to the village to work with my father after senior high school.
“It’s only by God’s grace that I have come this far,” he told Kwahu Ambassador at the Kotoka International Aiport while awaiting his departure time to jet off.
After his video about his recent accomplishment emerged online, people expressed excitement for Twum.
