NVE is a platform that showcases all of my creative interests – the fun, care free and the serious work, all of which enrich and keep my life interesting : fashion, travel, food and people.
I read somewhere that creative people are self-absorbed. First thought to reading this is not me!..and I am sure most creatives would disagree with said statement. Still I have to acknowledge that you need a bit of self-absordness to work creatively. I am not talking about the kind when someone is so full of themselves. Let’s face it no one wants to deal with that. It’s great to get inspired by external influences but I think when it comes to birthing something from that inspiration it’s imperative that it be about you, considering your feelings over anyone else’s, doing what is true to you. It may sounds negative since generally being self-centred is deem bad but ponder over it – it actually makes all the sense.
So it is this principle that I aim to work by to express myself creatively in real life and on this platform. It is what I like, what I know, what inspires me in order to stay honest and true to myself.
Hopefully things that I love and I am inspired by will also inspire others and I can impart things that can positively impacts on others. After all sharing is caring, so in the end it won’t be all about me but us.
My birth place and formative years were in Ghana, I moved to London as a teenager. I have always loved clothes, fashion, was very entrepreneurial from a young age but at the same time very studious. Studied sciences in college, then moved on to do Biochemistry at university. I moved to the Netherlands (I was a local of Nieuwegein and Utrecht) for a year as part of my Sandwich degree. I worked for a Water Research Institute over there and the result of that is here. Alongside working in science and clinical research for a combination of 7 year, I worked in branding and marketing, fashion, from working for a magazine to doing my own work from production, designing to styling. Now I comfortably describe myself as a serial entrepreneur.
My Current Online Projects:
At the moment I am mainly working on creating video content, Forex trading and helping people to learn how to speak Twi. I love video content and have always wanted to get into the YouTube space. However I felt strongly to only do it if and when I had a skill to share or something that would be useful to others. I am at a point in my life where I am pushing hard on everything with everything I have got to design the life I want – doing exactly what I want to do. And I feel the process and journey is something worth documenting and sharing.
I came across Forex trading about two years ago. I took some time to do some research in the area, built great relationships with people who trade for a living then but still didn’t take it seriously until recently. I have eventually decided to embark on my own journey of learning how to trade.
How I got the basics:
Twi is the language that is spoken by many people Ghana. Particularly in the Southern parts of Ghana. Around 58% of Ghana’s population speak Twi as well as around 30% of those who are in Ivory Coast. Other countries, like Jamaica and Surniname, also have people who know and speak Twi.
