First Class Female Graduate Of UPSA Now Sells Shoes For Survival



A driven young lady from Ghana named Sandra Ankrah who recently graduated with honors from the University of Professional Studies in Accra, and she has opened out about her experiences.

According to a post on her LinkedIn timeline, Sandra who currently deals in the purchasing and selling locally-made shoes repeatedly failed to land a job in the corporate world after graduating from college.

The first-class degree holder talked openly about her ordeal, revealing that she had high expectations because of her excellent marks and due to that she would get a fantastic career as soon as she finished her national service.

“Prior to my service, I had been full of hope as I had studied hard to attain First Class honours and dreamt of a rewarding career that awaits me. You can imagine a First Class student who has graduated from the University of Professional Studies, Accra, with a CGPA of 3.76 and how enthused I was to be employed in the corporate world”, she said.

Sandra Ankrah came up with the notion to start a shoe business after attempting to do so for several months without success.

“I had to ask myself the “W” questions; Who am I? where do I come from? where am I going? where do I start from?

Here I am taking my usual buying and selling of locally made shoes to a next level at Ahofade ☺️ after several unsuccessful attempts to get into the corporate world”
