About Me

After I completed my high school, I chose a course that I felt I had a passion in. I cannot begin to tell you the excitement I had when I finally joined campus and started learning. My passion for the course reflected even in my course work as I performed better than most of my classmates.
As fate would have it, I graduated with a first class honors and the top of my class. It was a happy day for me. In my mind, I knew that I would land a job very fast and start earning some money to take care of myself.
How wrong I was. I graduated in the year 2010 and since then, I have never had a job. I remember that at some point I was so desperate such that I was willing to try my hand at any job that presented itself, unfortunately for me, nothing turned up.

My Business

I got so frustrated that I tried applying for a job as a primary school teacher earning a meager salary of 30 GHS, however, the school management rejected my application saying they could not afford me. I was broken. Why was this happening to me?
Anyway, I gave myself hope that my day would come and I kept on hustling and pro-actively searching for jobs. I even went to the extent of enlisting the services of a recruitment firm, but nothing seemed to be working.
I got even more frustrated when I realized that most of my friends who had done other courses had all landed good jobs and they were comfortable with their lives. I felt like my life was wasting away and at some point, I started avoiding my friends because I felt ashamed.
I am starting to think that the problem is the course that I pursued in campus. Should I just go back to campus and do another course altogether? At this point, I will do anything to get a job because I have bills to pay.

Loan Proposal
