Mr. Abdul Rahman Shamuna-Executive Director for Seed of Hope ( a non-governmental organisation) has sent a strong caution to youth of Asokore Mampong Municipality.
At a movie night event organised by the rank and file of NBU Project, he admonished that whatever action initiated, be it positive or negative has a reciprocal effect, hence the need for them to set a clean record wherever they find themselves.
Still in his statement to the audience at the event, he conscientised them on the reality that life is a circle and that anything done today will one day turn back against them .
The above counsel was raised after participants of the matinee had finished watching a didactic movie titled “Acrimony” at the hub.
Acrimony is a 2018 American psychological thriller film produced, written, and directed by Tyler Perry.
The film stars Taraji P. Henson, Lyriq Bent and Crystle Stewart, and follows a loyal wife who decides to take revenge on her ex-husband.
The story is about bitterness and anger, with a dictionary definition of the title filling the screen to set the mood. After a brief and stilted court scene, Melinda (Henson) is smoking and talking to the camera where an unseen psychiatrist should be sitting. She recounts her story in voiceover, of the man (Lyriq Bent) who took her love, money and mother’s home from her for his pet science project.
Just when they were at their lowest point, his luck changes, and suddenly Melinda can’t let go of the past. Her rage consumes her little-by-little.
Touching on the entrepreneurial content, he shared lessons on how the lead character after all the hassles ended up succeeding.
Mr. Shamuna on that score advised participants never to give up when charting the path of their career irrespective of the challenges and failures they encounter.
He encouraged them to persevere no mater what, citing how founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) Colonel Harland Sanders struggled at the formative stages of the business.
He went further to give reference to how the business has now become the world’s second-largest restaurant chain after McDonald’s with 22,621 locations globally in 150 countries.
Hub manager Patricia Matey-Akuffo who was also a speaker for the event encouraged the youth to pursue a career based on their passion, talents and abilities.
She explained that career should not necessarily be related to programs studied in school.
