About me

Hi! I'm Ghanaian, I've been involved with Wikimedia as a volunteer since 2015. I have made several contributions mostly on English Wikipedia and Wikidata. I find Wikipedia and the Wikimedia community fascinating such that it has become my new passion. I love to learn and to be surrounded by knowledgable people who love to share their knowledge with the world, for me this is such an honour. Read more about my volunteering at my volunteer userpage. Will use my former account for all my volunteer work on the wikis.

I love reading, writing, dancing, singing and inspiring people to live a better version of themselves everyday. When I'm not working I love to travel and explore the world.

My work

As a board governance facilitator for the Wikimedia Foundation, I have the absolute honour of keeping all Wikimedians in Sub-Saharan Africa informed about Wikimedia's Board Governances Processes changes and holding discussions with community members to get feedback from them. I also serve as the anglophone regional ambassador for Art and Feminism, helping event organisers host successful Art and Feminism events in their regions. And as the executive director of the Global Open Initiative Foundation, I help to create awareness about open sources tools like Wikimedia projects in Ghana.
