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.
