A young lady from Vea, a farming community in the Bongo District of the Upper East Region has become the best graduating student at the Institute of Chartered Accountants, Ghana (ICAG).
She bagged four awards in the process after previously graduating with a First Class in Bcom Accounting from the University of Cape Coast.
Deborah Mmabila Azika, had to fight the odds that were against her as a young ambitious girl but she made it regardless.
According to sources, Deborah received four awards at the graduation including, Best Student in Advanced Taxation, Best First attempt, Overall Best Female Candidate, and Overall Best Candidate.
Before getting enrolled at the ICAG, Deborah studied Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting) and graduated with First Class Honours and a CGPA of 3.80 at the University of Cape Coast.
During her undergraduate days at the University of Cape Coast, Deborah won the much-coveted School of Business Dean’s Award twice.
She is currently with the Treasury and Debt Management Division where she assists in debt sustainability analysis and reporting, credit risk analysis of state-owned enterprises, among others.
Deborah’s mother sponsored her through school by selling at the bus station and she, with no electricity in her town, had to study with lanterns in the deprived community of Vea at night and beat all odds to get into university and ICAG.
