In my youth, I was extremely fortunate to meet someone who (despite my objections) convinced me that I could have, do, or be anything I truly desired. Needless to say, he got my attention. It wasn’t because I was anyone special or out of the ordinary. This, he told me, applied to everyone. If I was willing to put in the time to study, learn, and apply what I was learning, he said, I would certainly see wonderful results. As it turns out, he was right. The more I studied the mind, human potential, and personal development, the more I came to believe that what Simon Attah had been telling me all along was indeed true. Through applying those lessons, I was appointed branch manager of a financial institution by the age of 22… at the time, the youngest person in Ghana to ever have done so. I discovered to my complete joy and amazement that what I was learning and then applying….was working! I learned a great deal being involved in the financial industry, but my heart was soon pulling me in the direction of being totally, absolutely, fully immersed in my studies. Just a few years later (after passing up another promotion opportunity), I quit my job and went to work with Simon Attah. With his blessing and encouragement, I soon formed my own Study Abroad company – Cosmos Study Abroad And Counselling Agency, Ghana, that was 6 years ago. Since then, I’ve been fortunate enough to have taught extensively throughout Ghana and in a number of Africa countries on setting, pursuing and achieving goals. One of my very favourite speaking engagements over that time — for the last 2 years, in fact — has been at Ghana youth initiative camp for young adults. I see an incredible amount of talent and potential in each one of them, and more importantly, I want to be sure they see this in themselves. Imagine if every young adult around the globe could see within him or herself an abundance of positive possibility? Imagine if each one had the motivation and confidence to express that possibility? This has become my personal mission and it’s what led to the development of the Ghana Youth Project. We’re here to inspire, enliven, educate, and empower as many young people as possible to become courageous, confident, goal achievers.
