  About Me
 
I am 27 years old and a student at Niagara College, Welland Campus pursuing a post graduation in Gerontology. I completed a post graduation in Critical Care Nursing in December, 2018. I have a four-year degree in Nursing and two-year Nursing experience in Ghana where I was born and raised.
I am the eldest child of my parents and have three other siblings; two brothers and a sister. I lived with them and my parents until I came to Canada in April, 2018. I have a grand father who lives in Brampton with his family.
I am introvert and this makes me a good listener, very observant, trustworthy and empathetic.
I love singing especially hymns, drawing, reading and watching movies.
