Meet our personality for the week…

“Staying dedicated and committed to serve humanity gave birth to my life’s core values” John Aggrey

With a personal experience; as number 3 out of 6 children and been left to fend and care
for oneself at a tender age, I fully grasp the despair people face and the lost hope that
emanates into the air. Where others saw it as a failure, I saw a rising star, grass to grace
with the herculean task; supporting causes of ending poverty, protecting the
environment, and been a beacon of hope for the less privileged whiles improving
sustainable livelihoods.
I am an Africa Young Leadership Fellow (2018), Africa Change Maker Fellow (2018). I
hold a degree in Agriculture and an Executive mini MBA Leadership and Management. I
see myself as a continuous learner even with over 65 certificates.
