Kuulpeeps Ashesi: Since you came to Ashesi, how has your life changed

Kolah Tubare: Life has changed in a few ways. My perceptions of many things have changed. I’ve gained a little bit of broad knowledge concerning the things that matter now.

Kuulpeeps Ashesi: Are your friends and family back home treating you differently since you gained admission here?

Kolah Tubare: As usual in Africa, I got many people around me. Lot of them I didn’t know before. And unfortunately, some think that I have become so rich.

Overall, I’m regarded a bit more than before.

Kuulpeeps Ashesi: What has been an eye-opener since you came to Ashesi?

Kolah Tubare: The fact that everything is possible just that they start small and grow bigger to whatever size. As always said by Dr Patrick, I strongly believe that. Much important is the food.

Kuulpeeps Ashesi: Looks like you are an introvert, have you been able to make friends here?

Kolah Tubare: Yes, I do.

Kuulpeeps Ashesi: Do you feel pressured to excel in school because you’re on Ashesi scholarship

Kolah Tubare: (Talks with a serious face) I am not pressured at all. I just make sure that I give it my best shot. I realized that things done that way will be more efficient than harbouring in unnecessary pressure

Kuulpeeps Ashesi: How has being in Ashesi changed your personality?

Kolah Tubare: I thought I was a bit less introvert than I am. Interacting with people has revealed to me the introvert part of myself. I’m working on it and there is an improvement over time.

Kuulpeeps Ashesi:  Have you struggled to make friends with an affluent background?

Kolah Tubare: Smiles* Frankly, I have few friends from affluent family background and for most of these relationships, I don’t make the effort to start it.

Kuulpeeps Ashesi: Thank you for having us. Enjoy the rest of your Ashesi journey.

Kolah Tubare: Thank you. I feel honoured to be on your platform. Enjoy your day as well.
