About Me: 

I am a 33yrs old woman,Born in the volta region of Ghana,and an aspiring fashion designer.growing up I have watched my father physically and emotionally abuse my mother and my two elder siblings.Since my marriage in 2003 I have been suppressed by my
husband who had since not permitted me to be who I want to be.I have suffered emotional traumas that resulted in ill health.
But now I have taken the decision to stand for myself again as I used to before my marriage.Thus my joining with two other women to start an N.G.O to help women and children in need.

My Passions: 
I love nature,Creating,writing
My Challenges: 
Funding is one major challenge we face.most women and children in my community have poverty related issues where they largely depend on the men who abuse them.
My Vision for the Future: 
Is to help empower women and children through education and trade.
My Areas of Expertise: 
Designing,Trading
My Languages: 
English, Ewe
