Hope everyone’s year has started off well and you are all committed to your new year’s resolutions? I got right back into work after the holidays, busy wrapping things up in Ghana before my trip to Milan. As I promised to update you all more frequently, here’s what I have been up to since my last blog!
Last week I was honoured to escort my dad who was invited to attend the inauguration of the new President of Ghana. His Excellency President John Mahama won the vote at the end of last year with the promise to focus on development and unite Ghanaians, and both of these are extremely important goals for my country. Just like other hopeful Ghanaians I was very proud to be part of the inauguration. The traffic in the city was insane but we got there in the end and it was truly an honor.
I got right back into my usual hectic schedule dealing with construction work and overseeing my properties.
On Sunday morning we attended the unveiling of my Grandma’s tomb. I can’t believe it has already been a year since she passed and I still miss her every day, but it was a good opportunity to come together as a family and honor her incredible life once more. Never forgetting our Bess, my Grandma.
So I am now back in Milan, ready to fulfill my duties as a wife and getting back to work! I am also planning a trip to my third home London for lots of different business meetings next week. I’m hoping 2013 is the year I can really make a contribution to the development of education in Ghana and Africa, and step up my game to help promote and support African fashion world wide. Watch this space!
