Kojoh Atta and Bernard Marfo Atta

One of the best days in most young people’s lives is when they graduate. That is the day they want to share with their families – when thier parents can at least for once be proud of them.

However, for Kojoh Atta, his graduation from Stanford University is a bittersweet moment for him and his family.

Kojoh says he is a first-generation from a low-income background who is graduating DEBT FREE with a B.A. in Political Science and a 3.725 GPA.

This is a joyous occasion, however, Kojoj’s joy has been overshadowed by the passing of his dear father.

On May 17, 2020 Kojo’s father, Bernard Marfo Atta lost his battle with COVID-19 after only 9 days after he tested positive for coronavirus.

He contracted the virus while working as a nurse at the ODRC correctional facility in Orient, Ohio in the United States of America.

According to Kojoh, his 61-year-old father had no underlying conditions that the family knew of.

Despite the sadness, Kojo is optimistic about the future.

With a Stanford degree in the bag, we wish Kojo the best of luck.
