Being the only female in my year group to specialize in farm mechanization and engineering, I’d like to entreat young girls to persevere and focus more on their books.

What would you like the world to know about YOU? What life experience, challenge or achievement do you want to share? My parents got divorced at age 2. At 12 years of age, I had to become a house-help to people my parents had no idea about, but in all I did not give up. My dad who was my only hope also died when I want just entering high school but I didn’t lose hope. I pressed hard. I now work at a savings and loans company.

I started selling shea butter, African black soap, coconut oil, cocoa butter and other products a year ago, while in university and I’m still there... I was doing this alone because African parents, especially in Ghana, only believe in education. I needed advice and I needed ideas but there was nobody. I needed exposure from people with a lot of followers on Instagram but most of them were asking for money which I didn’t have as a start up business, so I searched for companies on the internet, and wrote proposals. Some responded, others didn’t. Today, I only have 800 Instagram followers but I’m about to ship a 20ft container to China.
