Bridget Otoo, a broadcast journalist, has given valuable advice to Ghanaian youth.

She advised them to be guided by who they are and where they want to go in life, rather than what others have.

In a series of tweets sighted by Modernghana News on Monday, August 15, the seasoned freelance journalist emphasized the importance of being one's own self without trying to impress others.

“If you allow yourself, the world would tell you who you are, how you shd look, talk, etc… I know it’s tough but please be your AUTHENTIC self. There’s so much going on in the world that every minute you spend living someone else’s life, you rob yourself of happiness.

“Don’t do things to impress but to make you happy! Remember those who love you don’t need an explanation,” she stated.

In furtherance, Miss Otoo hinted at the need for one to get their own ccommodation before flaunting different cars in a rented apartment.

According to her, most people showing off in luxurious vehicles are sometimes not even able to settle their rent arrears and have to beg for people to intervene.

She emphasized that such lifestyles are not worth imitating.

“I have friends who change cars every year but don’t own a plot of land and have to beg people to pay their rent. I have used the same car for 7 years but at least made progress in certain aspects of my life, like not paying rent.

“I know we are all different and a car could be more valuable to someone than a house. But when you’ve seen poverty like I did growing up, you won’t live your life to please anyone but to save for a rainy day,” her posts conclude.
