Intervention: CoRe

Pursuing my passion in graphic design. 

Mustapha is elated to have taken his passion for graphic design to another level by acquiring the skills to maximize his talents. The CoRe sessions on writing a good curriculum vitae and preparing for interviews have also enabled him to reposition himself in his search for a job after national service.

Mustapha Sumaila Adokoh is my name from Takoradi in the Western Region. I completed my national service this year. I joined the CoRe Programme after seeing an ad on social media. I was part of the Core Goodness Group and benefitted from the banking, finance, savings, and investments groups.

The sessions on talent discovery helped me to realize that my interest and passion in graphic designing is something I could take up more seriously. I learnt that every talented person needs to acquire skills in their talent area to be able to maximize their talent.

I have taken a cue from that and have started an online programme to help me explore and acquire more skills in graphic designing, my passion. I am therefore in the process of improving on my talent.

I have also realized common pitfalls about curriculum vitae (CV) writing and interview skills. These were very helpful to me in my search for a job after my national service. I now can work with a company in Kumasi. The sessions on career choices, relationships, time management, work-life balance and networking were indeed very insightful. I now see challenges as steppingstones to greatness. My relationship with my colleagues has also improved.

With the impact I’ve received from the CoRe programme, I now am a more responsible person and hope to mentor others with all that I’ve learnt. The CoRe programme has been very helpful to we the youth of this nation. I will never regret joining it.
