I cried on my first day of SHS, but I was inspired to remain and learn by my dad’s words – Kyei Kobby

Award-winning blogger Augustus Koranteng Kyei, professionally known as Kobby Kyei, has once again motivated the youths in Ghana to make good use of the environment or space they find themselves in.

Speaking to Berla Mundi on “The Day Show” on TV3 Ghana, the “Respect Zebra Crossing” campaigner made a shocking revelation about his first day at SHS at Nyankomase Ahinkro Secondary School, located in the Central Region of Ghana.

According to him, his dad, Mr. Kyei, went to check after the school placement was announced, only for him to be convinced by his father to be happy with the school, only for him to be surprised about the school environment, which made him cry.

“My dad checked, and it was Mfantse Nyankomase Ahinkro Secondary School. I had literally never heard of the town or the name of the school before. I selected Mfantsipim, Adisco, and Swedru Secondary Schools. So my dad went to check the school and came back and told me it’s good. They have everything. I’m proud of you. He went there to notice there was no dining hall—nothing. It’s just a classroom block, and they’ve dedicated some parts for the boys and girls. So I got there with my prospectus and everything, and I started crying. My dad told me, “Stay here and make myself and Ghana proud.” That’s his last statement.

Kobby Kyei is passionately known for being a motivator for the youth to be “generational thinkers”  and to make good use of the environment they are in. He added that his dad’s statement really pushed him, and by God’s grace, everything went well and passed to be at the University of Education, Winneba.

“Their school was like a “village school.” My peers were posted to Mfantsipim and Adisco, but I still stood on my grounds, and that year, I was the only student that passed to the university. I am not saying this to shame my mate. Some had to write Nov/Dec the next year before entering university.

He ended by advising the audience and Ghanaian students to never be discouraged if they don’t get their selected SHS.

“Sometimes, when you complete JHS, you are praying to go to the top high schools. You will be posted to some deprived high schools. It’s about your mindset because we will apparently write the same exams. It’s just that some don’t get the enabling environment to help them study; however, I will encourage that, whichever school you are posted to, it’s your mindset, your power, and how you are able to make your country proud.
