Despite securing 8As in the 2023 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE), Osman may have to put his quest for tertiary education on the back burner.
The Mfantsipim School alumnus, who now works as a mechanic to support his livelihood, cannot afford to finance his education due to financial constraints.

If he or she has a passion for mechanics, let him or her start cleaning at the technical institutions. If he has no love for mechanics and wants to pursue a different course, he can continue with fundraising or appeals. I hate to see talents go to waste.
