Ghanaians on social media have been celebrating a woman who works as a lawyer and also a nurse at one of the country’s top health facilities.

Elizabeth Owusua 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.

Owusua reportedly had a childhood dream of becoming both a nurse and a lawyer so went for it.

She is quoted in a social media post as saying that “As a child I always wanted to be a nurse, lawyer and a fashion designer all at the same time with no idea how they were 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 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 and graduated in 2013.”

According to Owusua in 2014 she 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.”

The story of Elizabeth has been celebrated on social media and shared over 100 times by users.
