”I want to be seen as that imperfect 23-year-old from a broken home with a lot of emotional scars and beyond-age experience, but a resilient heart.
I choose to put in the work regardless,” she said.

Selawoe stated that when she enrolled in the program, she had no idea how she was going to pay her tuition fees because she had no job or helper to assist her but she was determined to complete her master’s at the age of 23.

”A year ago I did not even know how I was going to pay my fees because I was just done with my NSS and I had no job neither did I have any money but I took a leap of faith,” she said.


Selawoe mentioned that though it was challenging she made sure to sacrifice a lot of things and also made her education a priority. ”Those bridges were the hardest to cross because that’s where the principle of sacrifice and priority comes to play,” she said.

She encouraged others to remain determined stating that there’s nothing they cannot achieve so far as they put their mind to it. Selawoe also bagged her bachelor’s degree with first class at the University of Ghana.
