Van Vicker, a multi-award-winning Ghanaian actor, has finally graduated from university 21 years after receiving his SSS certificate.
He took to his social media page July 24, to share the emotional story of his educational journey.
The thespian graduated from the African University College of Communications with three top prizes.
As he prepares for his masters, Van Vicker shared his graduation photos to thank his supporters and inspire others to never give up on their aspirations.
Van Vicker claims he received first-class honors and was the best student in strategic communication.
In an effort to inspire others, Van Vicker said that his single mother couldn’t afford a university when he finished SSS, and that his acting profession did not stop him from going to school.
He said he should have graduated with his mates in 2000/2001 but he’s graduating in 2021.
See what he wrote below;
21years later, here I stand before you with 3 achievements during my graduation; to God be the Glory.
1. 1st class honors.
2. Best Student in Strategic.
3. Best Communication Student
The above is within the context of my 2021 post on social media and is in no way presumptuous but uprightly to inspire – I could not enroll at a tertiary institution in 1997 because my single mother did not have the funds. If free SHS was available back in the day, most likely I would have graduated in 2000/2001.
My career took off and I have been blessed but as someone who relishes education getting that degree was just a matter of time.
I complete my Masters program this December and I am sorely motivated and committed to go even beyond, God willing.
I thank all those who supported me and is supporting me during this journey.
