Why you should listen to her talk?
Living overseas enhances how proud I am to be an African. Representing my country and my
Ashanti tribe is important to me. My experiences have usually singled me out as one of the
few, or the only African. I AM a part of Ghana’s Generation Next and I look forward
to sharing how I represent that in my work.
