I was born and raised in Ghana to a British-Jamaican mother and a British-Ghanaian father until the age of 16. I then moved to England for sixth-form at an all-girls Quaker school in York, spent a gap year in South Africa at the African Leadership Academy and went on to pursue a degree in International Relations at St Andrews University. After graduation in 2017, I moved back to Ghana to further develop an education business which I co-founded four years prior. Having worked on creating and implementing educational programmes for the last five years, primarily for under-resourced government schools, I am passionate about education policy as I have had first-hand experience of the detrimental effects that bad policy can have.
