Mr. Nuru-Deen Mohammed
“You never stayed at one place even when you were told to”, my mum will say. Even as a child I knew that moving from one place to another was something I enjoyed. With the saying, “Work, Travel, Save and Repeat”, as my mantle and a burning desire to travel as a key inspiration, I had a lot of experience travelling from one place to another with my course mates on educational trips. It may have felt to a lot of people as just a phase or school work but to me, it was a dream come true.
Having been raised in the Northern part of Ghana, schooling in the south played a role in my becoming a traveler and has significantly increased my love for traveling. I also had the opportunity to do an internship and a year long National Service with Ghana Tourism Authority and my current appointment with M&J Travel and Tours has broaden my scope in tours and increased my chances of moving around the country. With the experience gathered I relate well in every setting I move into.
