What's something you've accomplished that you're most proud of?

Graduating from undergrad was a huge accomplishment. It's simply a tangible testimony of all the sacrifices my parents have made.

What's something people may not know about you?

I was recently crowned Miss Ghana USA 2022. I am so thankful for the opportunity to be an ambassador to my community and bridge the gap within the diaspora while sharing and highlighting all the amazing things about my culture.

How would your family and friends describe you in one word?


Who is your biggest role model and why?

My mother is my biggest role model. She is so loving, and inspiring and reminds me of God's love and how we should always show our light to others.

Do you have any hidden talents?

I can wiggle my ears!

Aside from becoming a Miami HEAT Dancer, do you have any life goals you want to achieve?

I aspire to work in the sports industry once I am finished with my program. I'd love to see the other side of how much it takes to keep this well-oiled machine going.
