A 41-year-old Ghanaian woman has enrolled in Junior High School and is about to achieve her dream of becoming a health officer.
Having been born in Tamale, Felicitas went on to have her basic and middle school education in the Northern Region.
At 18, she fell in love after a man pledged to help her continue her education when they get married. Excited by the proposal, Felicitas agreed and subsequently got married at the age of 18.
However, things did not go according to plan. Her husband could not help her continue with her education. On the other hand, he himself furthered his education.
“He would always complain about my low level of education,” she told the Graphic Online.
“I had to pick myself up and start all over again. I was 40 years then. It was time for me to decide whether it was too late or whether I would start afresh. I choose the latter,” she narrates.
In 2006, she decided to go back to school. She was 41-year-old when she decided to further her junior secondary school education.
She had to undertake the Basic Education Certificate Examinations (BECE) as a prerequisite to enter senior high school.
“I was determined to go back to school and so this was not a difficult decision for me to make.” She finally enrolled in the Pedu MA Basic School after numerous failed tries.
“I had to barber my hair, sew my uniforms and get ready for school,” she reminisced.
“By this time my first daughter had completed senior high school,” she added.
She completed junior high school in 2009 and then gained admission to the Oguaa Senior Technical School to offer a course in General Arts.
Felicitas is currently a trainee at the Tamale School of Hygiene, where she will graduate this year (2019) as a health officer.
“It’s a good decision I took. I am glad I took that decision to go back to school. It changed my life completely.
“I have friends I couldn’t have had. I can understand my children better and I even look younger now,” she says of her inspirational journey.
