It is an established fact that Nana Aba Anamoah has a big heart.

She has helped people get jobs, raised money to pay for their school fees and even medical bills.

She has leveraged her contacts to help others get laptops for school.

Nana Aba has done a lot, however, with every story about her generosity, we get another peek into the full extent of her kindness.

Solomon Buernortey Adi is the latest person to recount how Nana Aba became his guardian angel, setting him on a life path he probably never thought would occur in his life.

According to Solomon, he met Nana Aba when they were both students at the University of Ghana Business School. Balancing work and school meant Nana Aba would miss some lectures.

The kind Solomon offered to help her catch up with the rest of the class, that was when she knew how intelligent he was.

Then she started telling people about him.

“She never stopped telling the world how intelligent I was and even made a personal promise to me that she will not rest until she gets me to the UK to pursue a Masters in Financial Mathematics,” Solomon wrote in a lengthy appreciation tweet to Nana Aba.

She kept her word by encouraging him to apply to a number of universities in the UK, he got a number of admission offers but when he finally settled on Brunel, Solomon said “she held my hand to the scholarship secretariat…”

There, Solomon said they met Mr Kingsley Agyeman, who upon seeing his excellent grades and hearing about his background simply said “this office was created for brilliant but needy students. You deserve this scholarship. Go and make us proud.”

He has kept that charge and delivered it.

Solomon is the only black African to graduate in 2020 with an MSc in Financial Mathematics from the Brunel University London.

His beautiful story made possible because he was prepared, showed kindness to Nana Aba, and she paid it forward.

It is humanity showing through on various levels.
