It's about time...
Thank you for making your way to my blog.
I'm hoping to populate this space with a number of stories, photos and hopefully videos that highlight my experience in Ghana thus far.
It's my first time in Ghana and I'm not here as a mere visitor, but to work.
Qualities that make my experience particularly peculiar:
-It's my first time in the country that my parents migrated from 25 years ago.
-It's my first time in sub-Saharan Africa.
-I speak the Akan (Twi dialect) language fluently. Thanks mommy.
-I'm meeting a number of family members, including my grandfather on my father's side and a bunch of my mom's siblings for the first time. A bit overwhelming.
-My first job out of undergrad is abroad. I accepted this position a month before graduation.
-It just so happens to be the Year of Return. Everything lit this December!
-I'm the first Princeton in Africa fellow to work at my organization, the first fellow in Ghana since 2017.
I'm looking forward to capturing as much as I can here. If you have any particular questions or suggestions for this blog, DM me on Instagram @yaabeverly or email me firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you to everyone who encouraged me to get this up and running at long last. I've had this domain since November 2017, and 2 years later.. I'm launching the site 😅
Tata for now,
