Yang Yang said she was only a poor tertiary graduate with no work experience in China or anywhere in the world when she decided to travel to Ghana but she is now a wealthy and influential personality.
She expressed appreciation to West African country, Ghana for helping her out of poverty adding that she wouldn’t have amassed her wealth if she had gone to another country.
“I always feel grateful to Ghana. I am a product of Ghana. I was so poor when I came to Ghana, I made my fortune here” Mrs. Yang said whilst adding that, she currently owns an assembling plant.
“Before I came to Ghana, I never had any work experience in any other country, including China. Right after I graduated from the university, I came to Ghana.”
She further narrated that, “I was studying journalism in China then later I was also chosen to go to the US to do my internship then the two systems crashed; I felt lost, I didn’t know what to do and at that time, I felt my situation was the worst. I said OK, let me choose another country to stay in, then I came to Ghana.”
“When I came to Ghana, I quickly fell in love with this country… I was a poor student at that time, then when I came to Ghana, I said I need to find something that I can do because at that time I was a student, I just graduated and I was so poor. If you are poor, you are not afraid of anything. You are doing whatever you can to survive,” The Zonda Tech CEO said.
She then decided to approach the Ghana Investment Promotion Center for support to start importing oil tankers to Ghana.
“I was telling them my reality that I’m so poor but I have this idea that I can bring tankers to Ghana,” she said.
Mrs. Yang’s statement during the 2021 episode of the annual Investment Summit dubbed “Spark Up 2021” challenges the mentality that one has to travel outside the country only to become successful in life.
