“It wasn’t easy. We didn’t have it on a silver platter.” These were the words of Mrs. Alice Oppong, CEO of AO Make -up, Ghana. She is a professional makeup artist. She was raised by a single mother together with 6 siblings. She is a twin as well. Her mum had to take care of her up to Junior High School (JHS) level and the rest she had to struggle on her own. After JHS, there was no money so she had to wait for one year before getting admission to Senior High School (SHS). She had to work and save for her SHS.
Her mother supported her as well to help her pursue her diploma course. She decided to pursue her degree course in Accounting at Marshalls University College,Ghana because it was close to her work place. Marshalls University College has also helped boost her knowledge and confidence. She got married in level 200 and currently has two beautiful children. Her husband has also been very supportive. “It is not easy but it depends on how you schedule your time. If others have been able to do it, then why can’t I”, she added.
Mrs Alice Oppong’s story will forever inspire me. She has certification in professional makeup and has a certification in Pharmacy. In the future, she plans to set up a makeup school to train others in professional makeup. She also plans to set up a pharmaceutical company as well. She really has the entrepreneurial spirit.
