I am an African! I am a proud Ghanaian with a multicultural background: born in Italy, raised in West and East Africa, studied in Washington DC and London and eventually settled in the city of by Deal Top” href=”#”>gold, Johannesburg! It is here that I traveled extensively on the continent, met African Leaders, had moments of pessimism, met movers and shakers, had renewed optimism, fell in love with the continent, discovered a passion for photography and film-making and best of all, birthed my beautiful son who has changed my life forever. The Afro Optimist Blog expresses my thoughts (sometimes unconventional) on social, cultural, economic, family, lifestyle and many other issues of relevance to Africa and Africans.
