About myself
I come from Ghana and live in the capital city, Accra. I have a bachelor degree in Environmental Science from University of Capecoast, Ghana. I work with the Environmental Protection Agency(EPA) of Ghana. My work at the agency involves investigating environmental problems and complaints from the public, screening project for permits and organising programmes on environmental education.

I love to spend my spare time by involving myself with Hipsters of Nature where I have the freedom to use my creativity in designing and music to empower young people in recycling of waste and urban gardening.
I am currently in Iceland studying about land restoration at the United Nations University Land Restoration programme to deepen my knowledge and skills on how to restore degraded ecosystems. I am doing a project work on how to learn methods that can affect the emotions of students and make them active in environmental protection. I would like to create settings for students to experience the same connection to nature as I did during the work with the EPA, NGO and on the music videos.
