Managing Director

Being part of threesixtyGh is bigger than being part of a team. We have created a family that consists of ambitious and intelligent young women and men from various Ghanaian tribes. We laugh together, we encourage each other and we motivate each other to be our best selves. threesixtyGh.com is our home away from home, a place where we can express ourselves and share meaningful content. It’s a place for the youth of the world to come and seek relevant content straight from Ghana. The platform aims to create opportunities for the youth and its affiliates that means a lot to me.

WHAT DOES BEING A PART OF THREESIXTYGH MEAN TO YOU?

“For me, it seems in a weirdly accurate way that Three Sixty is part of me. The emergence of self into the truth of becoming or being a writer is a process that is in itself difficult and is further made unattractive by the sort of discouraging narrative the African home weaves about it. Three Sixty offers a very necessary and rebellious space to be all that a writer and indeed a person can be, doing so in an ambiance of mutual respect, tolerance, healthy competition, and growth. Being part of Three Sixty means I am respected as capable and expected to improve continually.”
