Happy Independence Day to all my Ghanaians across the world! 


During Independence Day Celebrations, I believe it is important to enter a state of reflection - reflect on how far the country has come since gaining independence, where we currently are and how we believe the nation will develop in light of globalisation and rapid technological changes.
Over the last few years, I have found myself increasingly interested in the state of affairs of my homeland as well as the wider Ghanaian community across the globe. I deemed it timely to share a new series on my blog 'In the Diaspora' - where I will be sharing the stories of young Ghanaians in the UK excelling in their respective fields and hearing their opinions on prevalent topical issues the nation of Ghana currently faces. 

Expect a post or two (or three!) everyday this week to celebrate 61 years of Independence!

I would like to take this opportunity to commend all Ghanaians within the diaspora, notably those within the UK, that have done amazing things over the last decade. Organisations like Future of Ghana, Me Firi Ghana and Ekua Haizel deserve our support and I implore all readers interested in the development of Ghana to follow the linked pages. Let us collectively, strive for a better Ghana.

I hope you enjoy reading this series as much as I did preparing.
