Bernard Nii Nartey is the chief executive officer of Nat Recycle Centre . The 35-year-old artisan bagged his first degree in Social Science from the University of Cape Coast (UCC).
Nartey runs a flourishing business that converts used tyres into beautiful and sustainable furniture. He also uses sound systems from rejected machines and other waste materials.

Despite having a degree, the indigene of Prampram in the Greater Accra Region redirected his path to become a professional artisan. In a recent interview, the artisan said:
''When I completed UCC, I couldn't find a job. So, I had to divert to learn a skill to become useful to myself. It wasn't easy finding a job so I had to be smart,'' He continued and Said, ''One has to apply themselves and look around. They can learn a skill and turn that into a profession,''.
