Please provide examples of any previous entrepreneurial initiatives you have pioneered.
During my freshman year at kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Ghana (KNUST), I joined the international student organization Aiesec with the aim of getting the platform to develop and explore my leadership potentials. since then I never regretted that decision I took. I rose through the ranks and in no time was the project director for Afritour Project which was an Aiesec initiative to organise nationwide trips across Ghana for both the local committee members and the foreign trainees who were on exchange in Ghana.
Together with my team, we were able to organize two nationwide trips and partnered with an local travel and tour agency and the ghana tourist board to organize a seminar for junior high school students to educate them about tourism and also took them on a trip. we were able to secure some financial sponsorship from the company (African Origin Travel and Tour, Kumasi). the succcess story of recycle up Ghana is a living testimony of the dream we had when we decided to establish a chapter of Teog in Ghana and it is my personal dream to see a waste free Ghana in the very near future.
Beyond your existing team, who else are you working with to achieve your objectives, eg partners, advisors, mentors?
I have always kept a good and close relationship with my lecturers and former supervisors as I learn a lot from them and always go to them for advice in all of my endeavours. I connect with other colleagues who are engaging in similar activities and get to share ideas and provide support for each other.
