The member of parliament for Ningo Prampram Sam George has graduated from the London School of Economics and Political Science.
Sam George has taken to his Facebook page to share amazing photos of his graduation and a lengthy message detailing the challenges he went through combining his work as a member of parliament and schooling.
Yesterday, I graduated from The London School of Economics and Political Science – LSE with an MSc. in International Strategy and Diplomacy. This has been the culmination of a very demanding yet rewarding year.
The challenge of Parliament and my Constituency coupled with the work being done on the Private Members Bill my Colleagues and I are sponsoring, to having to study the course in person with the demands of family life as an added layer of responsibility, have taught me one thing – determination, grit and planning achieve everything.
This latest academic pursuit has not just opened a new vista in my career path but has as the LSE motto says, made me “know the causes of things”. I’m grateful to the academic faculty, my dissertation supervisor, my colleagues, and my loving family for their support over the past year as I embarked on this odyssey. My ultimate gratitude is to the LORD for His infinite grace and provision which made what was just a dream possible.
As the first-ever Ghanaian student on this program at the LSE IDEAS, I am confident that the knowledge learned would be put to use in service to our Motherland, Ghana. GOD bless our Homeland and make her great and strong.
Unto the next challenge I go!
