Ghana: The year of return
“I am not African because I was born in Africa. I am African because Africa was born in me” – Kwame Nkrumah
I know this sounds crazy but for the first time in my life I traveled to Ghana in 2018.
To be honest I never had a desire to go to Ghana, my parents always pressured me to see “where I’m from”, but I honestly had the western view of Ghana, which created a fear in me of my own heritage.
A lot of my friends were going so I thought, it’s really now or never.
After going to Ghana I don’t know what took me so long to go. If you’re reading this and you have the mindset I did, honestly GO! Ghana is beautiful! When I landed back on UK soil I was asking myself why I even came back, and I needed to book my ticket to go back again ASAP.
I made a quick Ghana highlight vlog of what we got up to out there.
Here are some images I took which really doesn’t have any justice to how amazing this country is.
These were shot on my Canon EOS M50
