Mr Juventus Duorinaah, a native of Charia in the Upper West Region has become the first-ever hearing impaired student to graduate from a University in Ghana with a Bachelor’s of Law degree(LLB).
Mr Duorinaah recently graduated from the University of Ghana with an LLB after three years of studies at the Faculty of Law.
A determined Duorinaah has defied all odds to pursue his dreams despite his disability and humble beginnings.
His impressive academic record at the Wa School for the deaf, Wa and School for the Deaf at Mampong, Akwapim, secured him a spot to read Sociology and Political Science at the University of Ghana. Mr Duorinaah aced it, graduating with a BA in Sociology and Political Science in 2015.
Keenly interested in human rights, especially the rights of the disabled and marginalised, he sought to understand even further issues of human rights and Law pertaining to them, so he proceeded to the University of Cardiff for a degree in Human Rights Law.
