Tchetche Kipre Ivorian Football star in Malaysia
“Growing up, my family found it hard to accept my desire to become a professional footballer. They wanted me to go to school and acquire degrees. My even dad thought football was for delinquents. But because it was my heart desire, I always found myself on the opposing end of my parents choices for me. My dad only relaxed on this whole idea of school when he saw me play in a league in Ivory Coast close to the city he resided in.

STORIES THAT INSPIRE
“Learning a skill aside from formal education is very important. My name is Yusuf and I moved to Malaysia from Sudan years 9 years ago to further my studies. I have always wanted to do IT. I finally got my degree in IT (networking) in 2017 and I just started doing an MBA. It’s not easy here because the law says, foreign students can only work part time for 20hrs per week during semester breaks and holidays exceeding 7days. Interestingly, I have always loved the idea of cutting hair. I did it a few times while in Sudan just to learn the art. When I moved to Malaysia, I realised there were not many African barbers to cater for the growing number of Africans in the country so I gave it a shot. This is what sustains me at the moment. I’d rather do this than wait on my family to send me money from back home. I love it though. I get the opportunity to meet soo many incredible Africans in Malaysia. For now, I really just want to finish my studies so I can go back to Sudan to contribute to the society.”
