Former Second Lady Matilda Amissah-Arthur has admonished students to be truthful, honest and persevere in their fields of endeavour.
According to her, after school there were a lot of challenges to be faced and after school those virtues would enable them to be unique.
”From here you go into the world and it is different from when you were in school and whether you like it or not, you are going to be faced with a lot of challenges,” Mrs Amissah-Arthur added.
She was speaking at the third graduation of the leading beauty and cosmetic institution, Salon Services and Beauty Academy in Accra with more than 200 students graduated from various departments of the institution including beauty, hair and massage.
The ceremony was characterised by various performances from a section of the students, including choreography and bridal dressing displays.
The former second lady challenged them to put the skills and knowledge acquired to good use and be guided by quality standards in the Industry.
The proprietres of the institution, Mrs Stella Amponsah, in her address, elaborated on the dream with which the congregants enrolled in salon services saying, ”A dream is a journey, on the journey, if you have to crawl, you crawl, if you have to walk, you walk and if you have to run, you run, you run until you get there.”
She lauded those who in diverse ways contributed to the growth, progress and development of the institution.
