Ruth Ama Gyan-Darkwa

Brother Of 13-Year-Old KNUST Student To Break Sister’s Record
Father of the 13-year-old girl who gained
admission to Kwame Nkrumah University of Science
and Technology (KNUST) says his sixth son will
break his sisters’ records.

According to Kwadwo Gyan-Darkwa, the proud father
of Ruth Ama Gyan-Darkwa, the family is putting
measures in place to train the younger ones to
Ruth Ama Gyan-Darkwa made history after she became
the youngest students to be admitted at the KNUST
to study Mathematics. Her sister, Grace is equally
“brainy” as she is set to graduate from the same
university next year at age 18 with certificate in
Political Science.

The achievement of the girls comes as a surprise
to many with some attributing it to the fact that
they come from a rich home.

But their father, Gyan-Darkwa told GHone TV that,
the family is not rich but committed to educating
their children.

According to him, the family has invested much
into the education of the children and ensures
they lack nothing in their pursuit for

He explains that, “A lot of investment goes into
it. Getting teachers, planning their time, making
sure they do the right thing at the right time,
they don’t play anyhow, anywhere at any time, all
these must be considered. Every book that they
need I buy for them. If I have to sell my
belongings to buy for them, I do. So when they’re
out there people think their parents are rich, no
we’re not rich but we’re serious.”

Mr. Gyan-Darkwa however hints that despite the
intelligence of his older daughters, he will do
all within his powers to ensure that the family
makes another history.

He said the sixth son of the family will break
Ruth’s record and become the youngest student to
enroll in a tertiary institution in Ghana.

“The others are very good that they can even do
better than the early four girls. One of them, the
sixth one we want to make it a project for him to
get to university around 11. We want him to beat
Ruth’s record,” he revealed.
