Twenty-two-year-old Selasi Seth Ahadzie, has graduated from the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Ghana becoming one of the youngest to achieve this in the country.
Recounting his journey on his LinkedIn account, Ahadzie said he grew up always wanting to be a chartered accountant even though he did not understand precisely what the profession entailed.
“Even before actually understanding what it means to be a chartered accountant, I so much wanted to be one. On 27th June I graduated from the Institute of Chartered Accountants (Ghana), sending me a step closer to that childhood dream,” he said.
His journey taught him that success and excuses don’t mix, added Ahadzie.
“One thing my ICAG journey taught me is that excuses and success don’t move together. Since 2016 I have found very nice excuses to rationalise my fear of sitting for the exams, until January 2019 (when) I said enough is enough, and here I am today, looking forward to the next challenge,” he explained.
