It’s normal. Along the journey in life, things must happen for other things to also happen. I also quit business administration to to do mass communication and I’m just loving it. Congrats to a Yaw sarong though. He did phenomenally well with his CGPA


wow. Congratulations as well. Making such a decision is neither easy nor difficult. In order to sail through, you must be exceedingly brave and resolute. Family and friends’ opinions can be a big cause of discouragement along the way. Best wishes for your future aspirations.


Sometimes all you need is a little courage to pursue what you really want , with a little bit determination, the key is analyze what you really want and stop focusing on what pleases others.He has done well for him self for chasing his passion
