Young people are out there taking on the world with all the strength they’ve got and Nana Akwasi Sarpong is no different.

Nana, who graduated from Wisconsin International University College (WIUC) with a GPA of 3.96, was rightly named the university’s 2019 valedictorian.

He studied Banking and Finance at WIUC after he fell out of love with science when he was on admission at the University of Ghana reading for a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology with the hope then, of becoming a dentist.

Last June, run an extensive feature on this brilliant guy who is also focused on helping his colleagues attain the best educational results they can.

The Presec Legon alumnus is said to have his eyes set on gaining admission into the prestigious Harvard University.

In a valedictorian profile from WIUC, Nana reportedly aspires to “become a Finance, Investment and Tax expert, charter in these fields and pursue further studies at Harvard.”

He also looks forward to becoming a business consultant, a motivator to young entrepreneurs across the globe and an advocate for innovative and practice inclined education in Africa.

At the annual SRC Excellence Awards, Nana was awarded Citation of Honour for his volunteering services to the student body.

He was also given a special Innovation Award for creating Wizzy Student Tutors (WST), an initiative that comprises a league of brilliant students from the various faculties, devoted to providing supplementary tutoring to colleagues in all departments in the school.

This initiative augmented the academic standards of students of the university.

Nana, who was born on the 4th of June, 1995 in the outskirts of Oslo, Norway, is the last of 4 kids. His parents moved back to Kumasi, Ghana in 1997 where they lived until August 2004.

In late 2004, his family moved to Atomic Hills Estates in Accra, and he finished off his elementary and Junior High education at Presec Staff Primary and St. Andrews JHS at Madina- Accra.

With a Valedictorian in the bag, one can only imagine what the future holds for Nana Akwasi Sarpong.
