I said ‘yes’ to something big. Life changing, I think.

I said ‘yes’ to be the most independent I’ve ever been in my life. Far away from my immediate family members and friends, thousands of miles away from home, all for an amazing opportunity. When I said ‘yes’ to move to Ghana for a little while, I said it full of excitement, irrational at that moment. I mean, I’m not completely new to this country, it is the motherland after all. But I’ve never lived here before, just visited a few times with my family.

I aim to explore Ghana like never before as I’ve been inspired by Maame Adjei’s Girl Going Places series, to learn Twi properly, make stronger connections with my extended family and just have a good time.

It’s time I relax and adjust to life here.
