From students leadership to politics, I believe that it is a step in a right direction for the youth, especially women, to participate in decision making and hold positions of authority that will empower more women to participate in politics and leadership positions without fear.

What ignited your pursuit for gender equality?
I believe that the aspirations of women and men should be considered, valued, and favored equally. It does not mean that women and men have to become the same but their rights, responsibilities, and opportunities should not depend on whether they are male or female.
Please share your biggest wins as an advocate for gender equality.
As a youth activist and a former International Relations Secretary of The National Union of Ghana Students, I had the privilege to organize a summit to educate students on illegal migration, an issue that engaged policy attention because of its deleterious effect on the youth.
Outside of your gender equality advocacy work, what do you enjoy doing?
I love reading, swimming, and traveling.
- English (Advanced/Native)
- women empowerment
- sexual harassment
