Managing Editor | Co-founder | Advocate
I am an advocate for corporate innovation and entrepreneurship, and women’s rights through capacity building, networking, and funding opportunities. I believe the development of young marginalized people augmented by scientific innovation is what will usher this economically-diseased continent of Africa into a new realm of modernity. Growing up in a very disadvantaged environment, the challenges of my home region motivated and inspired me to dedicate my life to transforming the trajectories of my community. Realizing that the challenges of my community could be solved by investing in the potential of young people and transforming them into change-makers, I co-founded the “Coalition for Positive Impact” (www.cpimpact.org) in 2018. CPI in abbreviation is a youth-led non-profit NGO focused on investing in and developing the youth of the Upper West Region, Ghana into transformational business leaders and entrepreneurs through innovation, mentorship, and technology. To date, CPI has fundraised over GHS100,000.00 of monetary donations; impacted over 3,000 youth in leadership and entrepreneurship; pump-priming funds to over 10 entrepreneurs in the Upper West Region, Ghana where we are currently operating.
I am the Director of Finance of CPI, responsible for the efforts, results, and success of the organization’s finance department. I also work as the Managing Editor of Accra Evening News, Ghana’s finest politics, culture, and current affairs news platform, priding itself on independent fact-based journalism. A historical media platform, founded by the revolutionary freedom fighter, Kwame Nkrumah, Prime Minister (1957-1960) and President of Ghana (1960-1966). What were the biggest initial hurdles and how did you overcome them?
My hurdles are some how my motivation. The place I come from – Upper West Region before the creation of new regions was the poorest in Ghana. So I was disadvantaged in terms of my access to opportunities for growth.
Your advice to an upcoming youth or talents locally and internationally? They should see mentorship as an element of their growth and development.
