“As a child I always wanted to be a nurse, lawyer and a fashion designer all at the same time with no idea how they were going to happen because of my background.

Well I attended senior high school at Mfantsiman girls which helped shaped my entire being.

From there I went to the Nursing and Midwifery Training College at Korle bu where I graduated with a Diploma in Nursing in 2008 and started working as a nurse in 2010 after national service.

I continued to Central University College where I did top up for a Bsc Degree in Nursing alongside work and graduated in 2013.

In 2014 I applied to Gimpa law faculty for an LLB and I got admitted which I did along with work mostly night shifts and gained admission to the Law school in 2017 after graduating from Gimpa and finally was called to the Ghana Bar in October 2019”


Her persistence is so admirable She attributes this feat to patience and God’s grace. She’s such an inspiration. Congrats to her.
