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.
