Ghana’s youngest University Student, Ruth Ama Gyan-Darkwah who got admitted into the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) made Ghana proud over the week when the news about her admission hit the internet.
Ruth,who wrote her Basic Education Certificate Examination at age 9,got admitted into St.Louis Senior High School at age 10 and completed Senior High School at age 12.
Speaking to the media, Ruth’s father,who is a Mathematics Tutor at Prempeh College at Kumasi indicated that his daughter was prepared to make history which she possibly did.
Meanwhile, the father indicated that Ruth’s record will soon be broken by her younger brother.
According to the father, Ruth’s younger brother is expected to get into the University at age 11.
“The others are very good that they can even do better than the early four girls. One of them, the sixth one we want to make it a project for him to get to university around 11. We want him to beat Ruth’s record,” he revealed.
He revealed that his children are always serious with their Academic work and are expected to make history for themselves and Ghana as a country.
He explains that, “A lot of investment goes into it. Getting teachers, planning their time, making sure they do the right thing at the right time, they don’t play anyhow, anywhere at any time, all these must be considered. Every book that they need I buy for them. If I have to sell my belongings to buy for them, I do. So when they’re out there people think their parents are rich, no we’re not rich but we’re serious.”
