21years later, here I stand before you with 3 achievements during my graduation; to God be the Glory.
1. 1st class honors.
2. Best Student in Strategic.
3. Best Communication Student
The above is within the context of my 2021 post on social media and is in no way presumptuous but uprightly to inspire – I could not enroll at a tertiary institution in 1997 because my single mother did not have the funds. If free SHS was available back in the day, most likely I would have graduated in 2000/2001.
My career took off and I have been blessed but as someone who relishes education getting that degree was just a matter of time.
I complete my Masters program this December and I am sorely motivated and committed to go even beyond, God willing.
I thank all those who supported me and is supporting me during this journey.
The actor indicated that it had taken him more than 21 years to grab his first degree.
This, he said was because his mother could not afford to pay for his education so had to abort that plan.
Vicker attended the famous Mfantsipim Boys Secondary School in Cape Coast. In a post on his Facebook page some time ago, the actor indicated that he completed Mfantsipim in 1995.
This means that the actor graduated from the university about 26 years after completing secondary school.
