Ewuraba Ekua is Chartered Accountant at 19

It is said that, “Success in life is not for those who run fast, but for those who keep running and always on the move.

This has been one of the motivating factors for one of Ghana’s youngest chartered accountants who is charting a good course for herself, family and the nation at large.

At age 19, young Ewuraba Ekua Aseda Tandoh, popularly referred to as Kukua, is already a qualified accountant.

For many, even the undergraduate experience is challenging, not to talk about studying for a professional qualification along with the degree programme.

However the young enterprising lady, although can work directly with her qualification, is also pursuing a four-year business programme at the University of Ghana Business School (UGBS), majoring in Accounting, and will complete next year.

This planned academic structure, according to Kukua, is to enable her to become a champion in the business field, with Accounting and Auditing as her backbone in the not-too-distant future.
