Initially enrolled at Mozama D/A School in the Central Region, he had to discontinue his studies at Junior High School (JHS) 2 due to financial challenges.

Despite planning to resume his education the following year, his plans were disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

In an interview, the determined father clarified that pursuing formal education at his age is not aimed at securing a corporate job, as he has surpassed retirement age.

However, Mr. Baiden believes his abilities and newfound knowledge will create new opportunities for him.

His resilience and persistence serve as an inspiration, proving that it is never too late to pursue educational aspirations.
