Helen Appiah - Ampofo | Ghana | Let Courage Lead

Radio Host | TV Presenter | Voice Over Artist | MC

My journey to tv/radio presenting has been a fairly interesting one and not one without its challenges. After my very first day of law school I knew that I wasn’t pursuing my passion. I’ve always loved interacting with other human beings, I’m very curious and I love to talk! Giving television and radio a chance has been life changing. I went to auditions but most importantly I put myself out there- even when I was uncomfortable - even when I knew I didn’t have every single requirement. It’s taken a lot of courage and I’m proud of myself. Being Ghanaian means being raised by a wider community, everyone is a stakeholder in your success, I love that but it also comes with some pressure and expectations. These days I’m learning to centre myself in my own story, take the bull by the horns and let courage lead. I’m looking forward to interviewing everyone on my bucket list!


What were the biggest initial hurdles and how did you overcome them?

The biggest hurdle I had to overcome was my own fear and self doubt. I still consistently remind myself that I’m doing a good job and that as long as I stay grounded, focused and just as passionate things will progress as they should!

What advice would you give to an upcoming youth or talents locally and internationally? Advice to young talents is to not take rejection to heart. Your core audience will find you. It’s okay to not be everyone’s cup of tea. Also- consistency is key, nobody is perfect the first go round, keep trying and keep pushing.
