Getting the Young Diaspora to engage with Ghana, by a repat who left the country

When people hear that I moved to Ghana and then left again they often think it confirms their preconceptions about the country. I made two videos with The Only Way is Ghana about my experiences and why I chose to leave. Ghana is not easy to live in but no where is in the world.

I would hate for people to focus on reasons for leaving Ghana. My biggest decision was my motivation to move there in the first place!

I think the magic of the diaspora engagement story is not the idea of reverse migration – it isn’t in the success of repatriating and staying there – the magic is in choosing to be involved and launching that exciting adventurous experience which may mean you straddle across two or more countries.
