I CAN READ AND WRITE
I was born in Accra–Ghana, into a circle of polygamy family and absolute poverty.
I feel very blessed and content with my life which is underpinned by the saying “In everything you do, put God first, and he will direct you and crown your efforts with success”, although, there was a time in my life when I couldn’t imagine my dreams come true.
