With so much happening all at once in my life, updating blog has become a chore.

L I can’t wait to tell you all about what God is blessing me with this year. Let’s start with my meeting with Lord Paul Boateng, Britain’s first black Cabinet minister and the first British-Ghanaian to sit in the House of Lords at the British Council Ghana, same day I met Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex, the youngest of four children and the third son of Queen Elizabeth II.

Sadly, I wasn’t allowed to take pictures with him but it was a pleasure talking to him about the Digital Jobs Africa Program, a Rockefeller sponsored program I am privileged to be one of the 4 facilitators on. I was blown away by the ‘down to earth’ personalities of both Prince Edward and Lord Paul Boateng; 2 great men with a heart for humanity. Humility especially amongst great people is admirable indeed. A great day it was!
