- Ghana was the first African country to gain independence
- Our first President was Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah
It’s 6th March! That means it’s the anniversary of Ghana’s independence. Yes, it is the 59th anniversary of the day Ghana gained political control from our British colonists.
What I miss…
By that, I don’t mean the boarding school portions I had to suffer for four years. I mean the food from roadside vendors. The roadside waakye and kenkey, as well as the athomo (sweet potato fries) and fried fish and hot shito (spicy sauce) that always accompanies the food. I especially miss the fufu and aponkye-nkrakra (goat light soup) whose aroma still lingers on your hand hours after eating.
What I hope for the country…
Over the past year, I have met so many people who are willing to go back home to rebuild the country and help us develop. My hope is that we will have the chance to go back and are given the opportunity to do so
So here’s to my homeland Ghana🍺🍺.
Now you can watch a blast from the past below! Enjoy!
Three most overused words on the planet, “I love you.” You know it’s true. I don’t believe in love. I don’t mean all kinds of love. I believe in familial love. The one kind I refuse to believe in is just the obsessive, jealous, hormonal love between two undersexed human beings. Did that apply to you? Sorry, not sorry. I have my definition for it, you have yours. It’s an opinion and like a certain part of the body, we all have one.
My First Conference
I had never been a conference attendee so this was my first experience attending one, especially one that is so Afrocentric. The Wharton Africa Business Forum is an annual event organized by the African students of Wharton Business School at the University of Pennsylvania. This annual phenomenon which has been going on for 23 years and brought African students and business leaders from all over the world together for one weekend to show them how to tap into the resources still available on our home continent.
