Elizabeth Owusua is an energetic and passionate lady who during the day pursues her dream of being a lawyer, helping people access justice, but at night she goes to the hospital to serve as a nurse to save lives.
Ghanaians on social media have been celebrating their compatriot woman who works as a lawyer and also a nurse at one of the country’s top health facilities.
Owusua reportedly had a childhood dream of becoming both a nurse and a lawyer so she went for it as soon as she could.
She explains on a social media post: “As a child, I always wanted to be a nurse, lawyer and a fashion designer all at the same time with no idea how all of this was going to happen because of my background."
Owusua first went to a nursing school and “graduated with a Diploma in Nursing in 2008 and started working as a nurse in 2010 after a period of training for the national service.”
She furthered that profession at a private University in Accra where she “did top-up for a Bsc Degree in Nursing alongside work, to eventually graduate in 2013.”
Pursuing her dreams, Owusua in 2014 applied to another public tertiary institution and got admitted to study law “which I did along with work -mostly night shifts- and gained admission to the Law school in 2017 after graduating from Gimpa and finally was called to the Ghana Bar in October 2019.”
Elizabeth Owusua really is a girl on fire to take inspiration from, for the good of her own country and the rest of the world.
