You’ve just won the lottery, what’s the first thing you will buy?
A house if I don’t have one. A three bed self-contain to be precise.
Where in Ghana did you grow up?
I grew up in Ashiaman, a suburb of Greater Accra, with my mum who is a trader and my dad who is a plumber now on retirement. I have three brothers.
What’s your most memorable childhood memory?
My favourite memory from my childhood is trading with my mum in the streets of Ashiaman. We would tread the street with goods ranging from foodstuffs to clothing and that made me know all the routes in Ashaiman.
Who is your favourite music artist?
I am a lover of choral music and Jazz, although I flow with all spheres of music. My favourite Choral group is the Harmonious Choral and The Ashiaman ARS youth choir. I also love Jazz from the 80’s and 90’s. As for reggae, my favourite is Busy Signal, Bob Marley, Lucky Dube and several others.

“I aspire to have a company of my own where I can reduce the unemployment in this country. I am a goal orientated person, a team player and adaptable to change.”

What would you like to be doing in 5 years time?
I have the dream of using education or work to travel all over Ghana and the globe as a whole. In 5 years time I see my career sending me to many regions in Ghana, neighbouring countries and other continents. Where I can use my experience and expertise to help others and encourage them to achieve more base on the potential in them. I would love to be a tutor in the field using the practical knowledge and theory to train others.
What or who is your biggest inspiration?
My biggest inspiration is my mum – when my dad lost his job she single handedly supported us through our education until my Dad had a new job. One favourite piece of advice I will never forget from her is, “To suffer now and enjoy later, is better then to enjoy now and suffer later.”
Finally, what is your most hated food?
I hate no food but when it comes to choosing between meat and fish, I prefer Fish
