Jennifer holds an undergraduate degree in African Studies and Philosophy from the
University of Cape Coast and aspires to be a development practitioner and lecturer. She presently works as an English teaching fellow with Lead For Ghana (LFG) at Ave
Afiadenyigba D/A Junior High School, an impoverished school in the Volta region of Ghana. She also advocates for female empowerment and excellent education for children in Ghana through the My Better World Program by CAMFED and the LFG fellowship. Jennifer promotes the well-being and continuity of the girls’ education through mentorship programs and training workshops. Thus, as a first-generation scholar, her ultimate dream is to see young girls work hard to succeed no matter what circumstances they face. She believes it is possible for underprivileged girls in patriarchal societies and remote places to support their own education through entrepreneurship without relying on unsympathetic guys, men, or families. This is why Jennifer administers the Teens-In-Entrepreneurship (TIE) initiative. Her project offers vocational skill development training to teenage girls. Jennifer instructs, facilitates, and communicates with stakeholders to gather support for 26 girls divided into sewing, baking, and bead-making specializations. Jennifer hopes that with Empowered to Educate's assistance, the initiative will meet its goal of 1000 girls in the next four years in Ghana and create two workshops equipped with supplies and tools to help the project in the future. Jennifer holds a maxim that together we can make the world a better place to live.
