It is 06:45 GMT and i am driving in the Kia Carens that shoulders my 90kg body around the capital daily (It occasionally serves as a mobile office.)
Notification sounds on my Galaxy Note 2.The vibration follows.
I swipe and tap and there it is:
“Our generation is full of achievers. While some are household names, others are unsung or totally unknown… We are unearthing, presenting, and celebrating these change makers as gems of their times.”
Newaccra.com, a “leading success and personal development brand” had named me as a young achiever to watch out for in its annual ‘Newaccra Achievers Report’.
It felt weird. Really it did.
I am not sure what i had done to deserve to be on there. Yet, i was.
According to the magazine, the compilation of unsung Ghanaians featured persons making impact and showing future promise in diverse fields. The 2015 edition honour sought to highlight thirty individuals from five broad groups- business and leadership, society and healthcare, competitive sports, literary and creative arts, and technology and media.
Majority of the thirty achievers are entrepreneurs and twenty percent of the achievers are females.
It was a truly humbling experience.
