I LOVE to share my life stories and inspire you or your audience to take positive action.
Whether you want to achieve some big goals, change direction, develop teamwork, or get outside your comfort zone, I’ll share stories that will help you or your audience or group feel inspired and want to take action.
My story is about overcoming serious adversity and achieving my dreams, despite the huge odds that were stacked against any of my dreams coming true.
I most often share stories about my childhood struggles living in poverty in rural Ghana and relate those to themes of persistence and determination. I talk about daily hunger and violence and narrate how that forged my determination to get out of poverty through studying hard and hard work.
I share turning points and insights. For example, despite the lack of any family funds, I studied like crazy and made it to university in Ghana, graduating in the top 5—the journey to that is a story. At university, I made friends who fed me and tutored students who needed help, living on bananas and cups of black tea for years.
Since then, I set up a social enterprise that helps dozens of people in my community, came to Australia and did an MA in Peace and Conflict studies, manage international programs for a large charity in Australia, responsible for budgets worth hundreds of thousands, and set up my own business teaching weaving workshops, the main skill I learned as a child before I went to school.
